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

Several news sites are reporting that a former producer of NBC’s The Apprentice is saying that former President Donald Trump used the N-word to describe a Black contestant on the hit television show. The former President has denied these reports. “This is not a new rumor,” says entertainment executive, attorney and producer Warren D. Robinson, “Omaraosa, alleged she heard the tapes when she left the White House. We heard about these supposed tapes [of Trump using the N-word] during both the 2016 & 2020 elections. Some have alleged that super producer Mark Burnett is intentionally shielding the tapes from public view. At this point though, there has been no actual evidence these tapes (thus any proof Trump used the word) exist.” Despite the fact that the public has yet to hear any alleged tapes, Robinson understands why this story still garners traction. “It’s because Trump stokes these racial fires. He hangs around with White supremacists and says things that could arguably be considered racist or at the very least dog whistles to racists. He also has a history of not renting to Black people so it’s very easy for people to believe that Trump would and did say these things.” In the end, Robinson does not believe this will have a major impact on the election unless: “If we hear the tapes that’s a game changer and I don’t see how even Donald Trump bounces back from that; However, without that this is nothing more than an old wives tale at this point. I have serious reservations on if we will ever hear those tapes, if they even exist. I’m not so sure they do but I won’t be surprised if they actually do.”

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.
