'Spanish flu'?

The term was coined over a hundred years, in a day and age when they were treating it with Asprin. It's a historic term. Like "Negro Baseball Leagues," never did get changed retroactively. But in the modern day and age, different standards of terminology are held than for history (and even historians are more often applying ethnic, biographical, and location autonyms for non-European peoples and places where European-applied or -derived names had been used for a long time). In the modern day, the terms in question and their more appropriate usage is far more important. And this isn't a "politically correct," issue - it's an issue of term distortion that can actually do harm to the integrity of the discourse on the matter.
