    From what I have seen/heard about the black community they are pretty religious,, therefore prejudiced. What people don't understand, they fear. Fear leads to some people doing dreadful things.

    Because people are intimidated/angered by other people’s mere existence and they are mentally ill so they kill these poor women

    The Black community harshly discriminated against Black trans women. Approximately half of Black trans women attempt suicide. Black-on-Black homicide rate is about five times higher than White-on-White homicides. About 90% of Black homicides are caused by other Blacks. 

    Black trans women would not be getting killed if they were not stigmatized by other Blacks.

    If the question relates to the USA, I would not be surprised about that rate of killing. 

    It seems that anybody in the USA who is not straight and cisgender and is not of impeccable northern European white stock is an object of hate.

    They trick men into sleeping with them.

    They are nearly always sex workers and drug dealers who "work" in the worst parts of town.

    Their death rates are no higher than other blacks who engage in the same risky activities. 

    And their killers are 99.9% black men.

    Because black lives don't matter.

    What is your source for this statistic?  What would you consider an "alarming rate"?
