Toxic masculinity and sexual violence have been key topics in conversations over the past few years, with rising moves like Times Up and #MeToo looking for answers, results and often support.
Many celebrities have made their own personal mission to use their platforms and privilege to highlight these issues in different communities, actor Terry Krue is an example of someone who works hard to be one of these celebrities.
Over the past few years, Crews has become a widely recognized symbol of toxic masculinity and sexual violence. He has spoken countless times on these issues, testifying to Congress about the need to better protect the victims of the assault and writing a book that criticizes perceptions and definitions of what "masculinity" means. His voice and his efforts are vital, as not many high-ranking men of any community have been honest about these issues, especially with regard to their own injuries.
In 2017, crews spoke of his own alleged sexual violence by a Hollywood contractor. The vulnerability of the crews was welcomed by many, but not by all. Many black men like a comedian, DL Hullie and a social media person, Tark Nashid, have actually illuminated his situation, especially with regard to the team that is not physically defensive.
During an interview with VLAD TV, Hughley hinted that Creus's fault was that he was attacked because he did not use his physical height to defend himself. "Hey, Mother, God has given you muscles so you can say no, and you mean it," he said.
Nasheid also had to say that the crews did not physically understand their abuser:
I do not know why actor Terry Krue is so angry at me.

Recently, the teams have taken Twitter to call out some of the men who have made his situation a joke, and even more to raise their problems with sexual violence:
I've looked at you all my career as one of the funniest, most talented people I've ever seen.
I remember when I saw that you warmed the crowd of the BEST Prince of BELIE and I thought that man was a genius.

Although the crews turn to these men because of their specific toxicity to the subject and the issue of sexual violence, this issue is far deeper than toxic masculinity, and in fact is a matter of constant anti-blackness.
Both men have built up reputation, audience, and platforms in part because of their views and call for injustice and inequality against the black community. Often, many regard them as "pro-black," a term that usually refers to a person who is focused and actively attempts to raise the black community educationally, financially and socially.
But it became obvious that Hully, Nashd and many who supported them were not interested in exalting the whole black community, but rather specific parts of the community. Both men made it clear that these parts often do not include black women, black LGBTQ and black men who do not agree with their views. Even credible men like me have received threats and attacks from their supporters, which are sometimes even worse than those of the racists because I do not meet the standards of their black misogynist.
Nasheed is known for his misogynist and homophobic attacks against Blacks, with whom he disagrees, as an example of which can be found in the often black-eyed women who do not agree with "bedding girls." He also claims that attacks on black masculinity can be found in the empowerment of women and the LGBTQ community.
Hulley's apple does not fall far from the same problematic tree. He recently defended past homophobic jokes by Kevin Hart, who eventually exploded into online wars with transsexual actresses Indja Moore. This exchange led Hughley to eventually summon Moore as a "pussy."
These types of interactions, unfortunately, are not uncommon and give a wider context of their views on the crew's work with its assault. Both men have developed cult followers of black people who see them as necessary resources and voices for the black community to fight white supremacy and anti-blackness outside the community. But the same problems they struggle with are often manifested in their own rhetoric for community members, and their supporters are pushing the same décor with their colleagues from the Blacks.

The division of these interactions and views has created a break in the black community and inherently led to mistrust and division in times when we need one another more than ever.
People like Halley and Nashid have, by their very nature, drawn a line in the sand and proclaimed what they are and not their kind of Black. If you are their kind of Black, it is worth fighting and if you are not, you will be greeted with similar attacks hired by white against the black community.
These people have created a sphere of influence that is not only destructive, but also corrosive to the very idea of liberating Black from the slavery of social and system chains that they so fiercely claim to despise.
Both men have punished the crews not to defend themselves physically against their alleged striker simply because he is muscular, tall and black. This toxic intake should sound familiar, as it is the same ideology that Huli, Nashd and their supporters argue against white people for everyday use.
The idea that Terry Krue should escape from his attack because of his height is rooted in the ideology of the "manding". They have developed an archetype of what the black person is directly associated with racist views of black men.
During their testimony at the Senate for Sexual Violence, crews had to say why, like a black man, he did not feel he was able to defend himself during his alleged assault.
"You only have a few successes. You have only a few chances to become a viable member of the community, "said Kr. – I'm from Flint, Michigan. I have seen many, very young black men who have been provoked in violence and they have been imprisoned or killed. "
Because of their toxic obsession with his physics and blackness, it seems he had to explain the complexity of the white domination of Halli, Nashd and their supporters.
Blackness comes in all shapes, sizes, joys and pains. Therefore, it is impossible to be "pro-black" and you have an agenda that does not include or protects all black people. Moreover, it is anti-black to blackmail the weapon against other black people, because they do not meet your standards of blackness.
While Tariq Nashid, D. Huli and their supporters do not understand that there is no freedom for black people, unless all black people are included. They will continue to have a regressive force similar to the oppressors they often struggle with.
