permission denied if I want to create new folder

I want to create a new folder in usr/bin. But it doesn't work.
I guess it is no problem to solve this problem.
Thanks for your help

Generally you should not create a new folder in /usr /etc /bin and the like, unless, you are installing a new program, but if you want to you can simply type:
su 'name of new folder'

I think you meant:
su -c"mkdir NAME_OF_NEW_FOLDER"
