A self-proclaimed white supremacist underwent a DNA test to 'prove' his genetic heritage, only to be told on live television he was 86 per cent European - and 14 per cent of Sub-Saharan African heritage.
Sixty-two-year-old Craig Cobb claims he follows the 'Creator' religion which "favours racial awareness" and has been attempting to create a "white enclave" in North Dakota by quietly buying up land in the small town of Leith, despite anti-racism rallies and town meetings against his plans.
He submitted his DNA as part of host Trisha Goddard's Race in America series, who gave him the results to a delighted audience, telling Cobb: "You have a little Black in you". However, Cobb can be heard dismissing the results as "statistical noise" and refused to fist bump with the host.
Cobb, who lived in the town for a year before residents became aware of his agenda, has allegedly harassed the only bi-racial couple in the small community, leaving notes pinned to their door asking Sherrill Harper, who is married to African-American Bobby Harper: "What are you doing married to a negro?", reported the Mail Online.
Cobb has also placed a sign reading "Village of the Damned" on one of his plots of land, accompanied by a red swastika.
