Opinion - ‘Enough attention already’

I read with interest the article by Leslie Landrigan about Dana Parker telling his side of the offensive signs that he put up. They are not racist he claims. People are not seeing the whole story. I applaud the Ad-Vantages for giving him the space to tell his side of the story. I think that part of his side of the story, however, must be recognized as an attempt to gain attention. We do not need 150 to 200 people gathering to hear more from this man. Enough attention already! This man and his views should not be dignified by such a gathering.
