Background: Anti-semitic white supremacist Criag Cobb gained notoriety for his movement to dominate the town of Leith, North Dakota with other white supremacists. The town has one African-American resident, who is married to a white woman. Cobb, who moved to Leith in 2012, attracted other white supremacists to the town and has Neo-Nazi paraphernalia displayed on his property. As a result, local residents and anti-racist organizations have organized multiple protests in Leith against Cobb and his allies.

Now the story from The Bismark Tribune:

Quote:
Craig Cobb, the white separatist and hate crimes fugitive living in Leith, says a DNA test that shows he is part black is not good news and he plans to take more reputable tests to see if the results are accurate.

Cobb, who's created upheaval in the Grant County town since buying property so he can take over Leith with other neo-Nazis and racists, submitted to a DNA test for the national TV Trisha Goddard talk show.

Goddard revealed the results in a follow-up taped segment that will be aired Nov. 18, but clips of her reading the results to Cobb are showing up on websites.

In it, she laughingly tries to fist-bump Cobb and says, “You've got a little black in you.” Cobb pulls away and won’t fist-bump back.

The tests show Cobb is 14 percent Sub-Saharan African and the remainder European.

Oh snap! LOL

(Watch your back Trisha, remember Jenny Jones had a murdery guest. gobsmacked)

All of us are black, according to popular genetic theory.

What's science got to do with it? If you don't like the result, deny the science. DNA is just a "theory" after all.

Indeed, all of those successful reparative gene therapies developed by sheer luck and not from that junk science. coffee

Rick is the devil offering us all the fruit of the tree of knowledge. Woe to those who will taste this apple.

Yeah, Hitler had a bit of the same problem with his Jewish blood.

Hermann Hesse was correct. See quote in OP.
