Lauren Holiday speaks out about an incident Jrue had with police
quote:

Jrue and I have always cared deeply about racial injustice — and fought hard against it. But when we encountered racism on a personal level? Instead of confronting it, we tended to reckon with it privately.

Instead of exposing it, I’d mostly keep it to myself.

And then something happened that I couldn’t keep to myself.


TL;DR Lauren got pulled over for no reason she could tell, she didn't have her license so she called Jrue who brought it and he got cuffed as soon as he got out of the car...

It's a medium length article but well worth the read.

After reading that, for some reason, no clue why, I love and root for Jrue even more lol. Maybe because I can just imagine him in that situation just looking to his wife and sister with that calming stare.

I fricking love the Holiday family. They all come across as genuine good people that want to make a positive impact on others.

was it her white privilege that caused her to get pulled over as well?

Honestly the whole thing is pretty strange. They pulled her over for tint, which I have been dozens of time. It is illegal you know, dumb but illegal. Weird thing is, I can't even imagine Jrue walking up with her license and they just throw cuffs on him lol.

The Holidays' seem like great people, from Jrue, his parents, his brother's, Lauren, etc. just all around class acts.

Your white privilege is showing. Just because you've never had it happen to you, doesn't mean it doesn't happen every single day across the country.

100% agree. All the white privileged crap thrown in alerts my bull shite meter.
That being said, i obviously don't know Jrue or his family, but from what i can gather as an outsider, they seem like great people that i would have no reason to not believe. Sucks if that truly happened that way. We all know there's crappy cops out there. Doesn't make them all shitty cops.

It sounds like there are some missing parts of this story. It doesn’t make sense at all. Would love to see the body cam/police car footage.

Definitely possible. No doubt it happens. But I’m automatically skeptical when you have all the fake racism incidents like we had with Jussie, Lebron, and Nascar.

I don't. I'd believe Jrue if he said it.
