@user6641, I voted to reopen. I see I'm lonely in that assessment at the moment.

comment Slavery Reparations
@user8547, 1) Excommunication in Judaism doesn't work that way. 2) Those organizations don't represent "the Jews". No organization does, although many could claim to come closer than those. Since at least the close of the Babalonian Talmud (c. 500 CE), Judaism has been a decentralized religion with no single body speaking for all of it.

comment Does everyone say the piyut addressing Af beri?
Af Beri isn't addressed, just described (at least in the Nusach I'm familiar with) so perhaps that is a distinction with Machnisei Rachamim.

comment Slavery Reparations
With one exception no Jewish slave holders observed any Halachic requirements regarding slaves (and that one didn't really observe them in their entirety either), so what makes you think that any Jews who participated in the early American slave trade had, or were interested in, any opinion from rabbinical authorities on the matter?

comment Has Judaism succeeded or failed at being a light unto the nations?
@user6641, yes, that would certainly be an objectively answerable question, although you might consider phrasing it more neutrally (e.g. "... on the subject of whether or not the Jewish people have successfully been ...")

@user6641, not sure you really can fix the question. Any answer is a matter of opinion. Nothing really wrong with the question, but not every question fits here.
