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

Fani Willis, the district attorney of Fulton county Georgia, is currently prosecuting a RICO case against entertainer Jeffrey Lamar Williams, better known by his rap name, Young Thug. If you are not familiar with this case (you likely are not very active on TikTok) it revolves around Atlanta based rapper, Young Thug, who is alleged to be the head of a large criminal enterprise that has been a menace to metro Atlanta committing a string of violent crimes throughout the city for years. Willis is also prosecuting former president Donald Trump and while at face value it may seem these cases are not related, entertainment executive, producer and attorney Warren D. Robinson says they are actually. “They are essentially charged with the same crime under the same statue.” Says Robinson, “I liken it to a puppet master. Both Thug and Trump are accused of being the ones pulling the strings of the people actually carrying out most of the ‘predicate crimes’ or ‘overt acts’  that make up the indictment.” Robinson believes this case gives us insight into how the office will handle Trump’s case and it doesn’t look good for Fulton County prosecutors. “This case has been a mess.” Says Robinson, “First of all it is the longest jury selection in Georgia history, with multiple delays it took nearly 2 years to get to trial. Then we have an investigator from Willis’s office propositioning a witness for sex, an alleged drug deal in open court and now allegations that Willis’s assistant district attorney’s have engaged in witness tampering, intimidation and suborning perjury.” Robinson believes when you add these scandals, especially if proven true, to the sex scandal that already has plagued Fani Willis it creates a massive distrust in her office that will only benefit Trump in the end. “Trump’s whole goal is to disrupt and create distrust in the criminal justice process and system.” Contends Robinson, “The way her [Fani Willis] office is handling this Young Thug trial with very little regard for the rule of law or his civil rights is a harbinger to the arguments Trump will use to discredit her, her office and the Jury verdict if he is convicted. The public loss of trust in the system will prove to be Fani Willis’s greatest victim.”



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.’
