Feedback on Yesterday's Issue

my response to "R"- name deleted for privacy. she wrote in response to yesterday's pipeline. 
while i could see how it could be offensive, i was just now thinking about my deceased grandmother...  she called her father a "fishmonger," i am not even sure what a fishmonger is, but when her family came here from eastern europe they had a little fish store in the city where they sold fish, and while i am not sure if masada of sultan's knows if i am jewish or not, when she said she purchased sugarcane from "a jewish guy" i thought that was more cool than offensive. what do other jews think? i am curious. thanks. 

response to R
sorry, i am jewish and i was just quoting her, and as a jew myself i did not find it offensive.  my proofreader was not able to proof yesterday and usually catches those types of errors. thanks for your email and in retrospect i agree that it could be considered offensive to some people. will issue a correction next week. thanks for your feedback.

I find copywriting such as:

The short answer, 15 years. For the longer version...  In 1984 Masada and her husband purchased Sugarcane Foods at Hoyne and North from "a Jewish guy."

Very offensive and outdated...please get with it!

Thank you,
RXXX ( a Jewish girl)
