The "disease" is a kind of madness—a loss of reason when any legal issue involving Blacks occurs. He hopes that they'll come to him for sensible answers instead of listening to the gossip. (His insistence on them thinking for themselves, reading, and doing the right thing should have laid the groundwork for this.)
