Craig Cobb, racist NoDak gadfly, is 14 percent African [VIDEO]

itemprop

Remember Craig Cobb? He's the Canadian hate-crime fugitive who's trying to establish a "White Nationalist Community" in the small, unsuspecting city of Leith, North Dakota.

Well, for reasons unclear, the 62-year-old agreed to take a DNA test for a talk show hosted by Trisha Goddard. The result: He's 86 percent European and 14 percent sub-Saharan African.

Cobb immediately dismissed the scientific evidence as "statistical noise" -- to which Goddard replied: "Sweetheart, you have a little black in you."

His nonsensical comeback -- "oil and water do not mix" -- was nearly drowned out by the audience's laughter and cheers. Twice he turned down Goddard's fist bump, a gesture of solidarity.

Cobb made international headlines in late August for purchasing a home with no septic tank or running water and a dozen other lots next to the county's only black man. Cobb has been using Craigslist to entice other racists to join him in his effort to take over the city.

"We will become the majority, there is no doubt," he told the Daily Mail. "Do not ask for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for Leith."

Evidently Leith doesn't want him. Last month, the city approved a building moratorium and took other steps to prevent white supremacists from living on property without basic plumbing.

Without irony, Cobb responded to the news by calling the city's residents "evil and nasty."
