Chrishaun “CeCe” McDonald, 24, and some friends, all of whom were black, were walking outside a Minneapolis bar last June when four white people began calling to them using racial and other types of epithets. McDonald, who was born a man and is transitioning to a woman, later testified that she and her friends tried to walk away.
