NYC Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind Under Fire for Wearing Blackface Makeup, Afro Wig to Costume Party

New York City Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind is under fire for his decision to wear blackface makeup, an Afro wig and a basketball jersey to a costume party at his home in Brooklyn to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim. He calls the criticism of his actions “political correctness to the absurd.” Um, Dov Hikind was the same person who criticized fashion designer John Galliano earlier this month, after he was photographed in New York City dressed as a Hasid, with a long jacket and curly sidelocks.
