A state assemblyman from Brooklyn, N.Y., wore blackface paint and an Afro wig to a costume party over the weekend, and says he "can't imagine anyone getting offended."
The party was for the Jewish holiday Purim, a festive celebration often commemorated by dressing up.
According to Politicker, Assemblyman Dov Hikind hosted a Purim party at his home over the weekend...Hikind told Politicker that he was "trying to emulate, you know, maybe some of these basketball players."
Up until now, I've always thought of For Your Consideration when I hear about Purim. But old Assemblyman Hikind maybe burned another indelible image into my mind.
