INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed filmmaker Warren D. Robinson (image below).
One of the most important issues to voters across the country (not just on the border) is illegal immigration. Specifically the recent historic influx, under the Biden administration, of millions of migrants from all across the world who seemingly cross, integrate and remain in the United States undeterred by Federal Officials. In response to what has been deemed an “invasion” the Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has stepped up the state’s response by adding razor wire, buoys in the water to prevent crossings, had the Texas national guard stand along the border as a deterrent and even took over control of a local park (where migrants flocked) so that Texas authorities could arrest them for trespass and under a new law, Texas judges can order them deported for violating the law. All of these measures have been opposed by the Federal government but recent polls show that they remain popular with a slim majority of Texas residents. A majority of people also support Abbott’s recent decision to bus and fly migrants to sanctuary cities (Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., etc…) across the country. “Governor Abbott is very shrewd in garnering attention on this issue,” says entertainment executive, producer and attorney Warren D. Robinson, “the busing was a brilliant P.R. move that not only made headlines but it forced democratic mayors to admit the Biden administration has dropped the ball on enforcement at the border.” Robinson doesn’t believe Abbott has implemented any of these new laws or regulations with the intent they would actually be enforced. “He is not a stupid man,” says Robinson, “he knows the state is preempted on most of this stuff. His intention is not to make actual policy, it’s to make news and he has done that effectively.” At the end of the day Robinson believes Texas and Abbott are winning the public relations battle at the border. “People can’t deny what they’re seeing; by busing migrants to communities across the country Abbott has made the border issue real to millions of Americans and has made the Biden administration look derelict in its duty.”
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.
