It was specifically stated that it was a Jewish company. It was not stated that it was a Jewish "owned" company.
That difference is important, I think, only to you. We are talking about today arent we? SO what is yor overall point? I believe theres some smoke and a few mirrors invloved
I cannot agree with you. And your response above, in my opinion, is just a trivialization of what I know is offensive to many Jewish people.
You see Jewish Americans would like to think that the non-Jewish Americans are reaching a point where being Jewish is just a religion, an ethnic group , and a very mixed gene pool. However, identifying something as "Jewish" does harken back to the days, in the minds of more than one person (Jewish or not Jewish, I believe), when hotels in Miami proudly advertised "Only Gentiles." So, in the minds of some people (and let's be honest that reflects a percentage of the population), a "Jewish company" has connotations that reflect positive and negative biases (i.e., the prices may be too high, the advertising might be false, the prices may discounted for inferior merchandise, the staff might be too Jewish and one might not be comfortable with any interaction)
So, please don't pretend there is no bias when it comes to Jews today, whether they are totally secular, or religious. In a world where so many liberals find the Palestineans a downtrodden group, but cannot find the Jewish Israelis a
victim of the genocide, in Europe in the 20th century, that requires their own homeland. I think you are not seeing the reality, other than from your own vantage point.
Put it this way, political correctness basically states we should be color-blind, and blind to other differences. So, referring to a company as a "Jewish company," rather than a "Jewish owned company," is not politically correct. And, then the question is what motivates that political incorrectness? So, no one is accusing anyone of bias; however, it might reflect some quality unknown to me to speak in a vernacular that is atavistic to the 20th century.
Do you refer to companies as Jewish companies or Gentile companies. (Or do "Gentile companies" need no distinction, since only "Jewish companies" need a distinction, in the way of a "warning" to unsuspecting non-Jews, that they might be doing business with a group one should be wary of?) Otherwise, why make the distinction that a company is "Jewish"? Please expound on the need for such a distinction, if no pejorative would be implied? Sort of like my not referring to people in your neck-of-the-woods as "hicks," since it can be insulting, because it implies they might be rubes, and today, with the advent of tv, radio, mass education, people can live anywhere and be sophisticated about all sort of things. The term "hick" is atavistic, and might just make someone in your neck-of-the-woods feel offended. See? If I do not want to offend anyone in your neck-of-the-woods, I just don't use an atatvistic term, since it could be offensive to people I have no desire to offend.
So, in my own opinion, anyone that would not understand that the term "Jewish company" is offensive to many Jews possibly might not understand the ways of urban diverse American.
