The weekend fatal shooting of a teen at an apartment complex near downtown Athens was the culmination of a feud between two transgender groups, Athens-Clarke County police confirmed Wednesday.
Rayquann Deonte Jernigan, 17, who was known to friends by the chosen name of Ava Le’Ray Barrin, was killed Sunday morning by a single gunshot fired by 21-year-old Jalen Breon Brown in the parking lot of Riverview Apartments on College Avenue, police said. …
Several transgender organizations issued statements concerning the fatal shooting, including Black Transwomen Inc.
“What saddens and infuriates us as an organization that seeks to represent and empower black trans women is that Ava was just 17 years old and hadn’t even had a chance to follow her dreams yet,” the statement said. “Ava has become not only the 14th trans woman murdered in the U.S. in 2017, she unfortunately is now the youngest one killed this year. She is also the 12th African American trans person killed this year.”
It’s not really uncommon, however, for black trannies to get into brawls. I can recall back in the 1980s when my wife’s friend A., who lived in the Boys Town neighborhood on the Chicago’s north side, had to get the bus downtown one Sunday morning at 4am. While she was waiting for the bus, the neighborhood’s 6’4″ black tranny hooker with the six inch platform heels started pushing her and screaming at her that everybody knows that this was his street corner.
