There are also the times when discrimination turns deadly or nearly so. Jazzaline Ware, a Black transgender woman, was found dead in her apartment in Memphis a little over a month ago, and her death is being investigated as a homicide, Gore says. Then last week in Southaven, Miss., just across the state line from Memphis, a trans woman was shot in both legs with an assault rifle while trying to drive away from a Waffle House restaurant, she says. The woman, whose name has not been made public, is still hospitalized, and one man has been arrested in connection with the crime.
