Dem. Lawmaker ‘Sorry’ for Wearing Blackface at Purim Party

Hikind demanded an explanation from Galliano for his costume.

“If it was just anyone else, I wouldn’t know what to say. But considering who this guy is, considering his background and what he’s said in the past, let him explain it to all of us: Are you mocking us?” Hikind told the New York Post.

On Jan. 31, Hikind asked the president of Brooklyn College to resign for failing to stop an event he said had a racist agenda. He wrote on his blog at the time that the “BDS Movement Against Israel” event called for a unilateral boycott against Israel and Israeli businesses.

In Albany, Hikind has championed some conservative and religion-based issues. In 2009, he opposed an early vote to legalize same-sex marriage

“It is about what I believe God wants,” Hikind said then. “God doesn’t flip-flop on an issue.”
