Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed filmmaker Warren D. Robinson (image below).

It is hard to think of New York City and not think of Donald Trump. For many years he and his late ex-wife Ivanka, were the poster children for high end New York society (even if actual members of New York society never accepted the garish Trumps). The first names that came to mind when one mentioned the rich and fabulous of Manhattan. His buildings, on the most prominent streets are iconic, Trump Tower on 5th avenue, The Plaza Hotel, The Trump Building at 40 Wall Street and even the Wollman ice skating rink in central park.  Even his television persona was built around this idea of him being the king of New York. Well, the kingdom has rebelled because the city that made Donald Trump is determined to destroy him now. He recently, was found guilty of sexual abuse and defamation by a New York City jury, the New York state Attorney general recently won a $350 million civil case against him in a Manhattan courtroom and the Manhattan district attorney is set to prosecute him later this month on criminal charges related to election interference. “It certainty is as big a fall as one could imagine.” says entertainment attorney, producer and executive Warren D. Robinson. He does agree that some of the New York prosecutions may not be entirely legitimate. “I’m no Trump supporter, but a few of these are shaky legally.” He says, “they likely wouldn’t be charged if it was anybody other than Trump.  However, Trump wanted to impress New York society, if he had set his business up in Florida he wouldn’t be in this situation right now.”


According to a statement, “Entertainment executive and producer, Warren D. Robinson believes that when organizations are willing to have open and honest conversations about race and their own bias they can commit to meaningful change. We have seen this recently in the form of Hollywood award shows, particularly, the Grammys and the Academy Awards (Oscars). The Recording Academy and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have both taken concrete steps to diversify their ranks and address inherit biases in their voting processes. As a result we have the most diverse crop of award winners/nominees, respectively, we’ve ever seen. Contrast that with the scandal and production shutdown currently at CBS’s The Talk, which resulted because a co-host was unable to properly engage in a conversation about race, address her own bias and commit to doing better. ‘The key part to every conversation’ Warren says, ‘starts with listening. Listening and hearing are different and if you are unable to listen then you are unable to have a conversation.’


“Warren D. Robinson, is an avid and accomplished entertainment executive, motivational speaker, host, life coach and award winning producer who created the wildly popular series, Buried by the Bernards, which is currently streaming on Netflix.


“Warren has served as an entertainment consultant, manager and producer, facilitating, appearing and negotiating high powered deals on behalf of his clients in front of such companies as: Warner Brothers, BET, CNN, Freemantle, Best Buy, TV ONE, Netflix, Lifetime, Fox News, WE TV, E!, NBC Universal, Viacom and more. In addition, Warren’s entertainment prowess includes coordinating, partnering and/or producing events for: legendary actress Pam Grier, Taraji P Henson, Gabrielle Union, Vivica A Fox, Soul singer Eddie Levert (of the O’Jays), Comedian Mike Epps, Angie Stone, Flavor Flav, the Indianapolis Colts, Donna Joyner-Richardson, Stephanie Mills, Erykah Badu and Tom Joyner among others. Warren graduated from Indiana University (B.A.-Political Science) and Howard University School Of Law (J.D.).”
