VIDEO: White supremacist finds out he’s part black

In what must have been a nightmarish scenario for Craig Cobb, British TV host Trisha Goddard informed the infamous white supremacist that he was in fact 14 percent sub-Saharan African. Goddard had invited Cobb to take a DNA test to reveal is ethnic makeup on her daytime talk show, “Trisha.”

Cobb is notorious for his racist antics, including an attempt to buy a town and turn it into an all-white colony in North Dakota, as reported by the New York Times. Cobb is wanted in Canada for promoting hatred, and the Southern Poverty Law Center has flagged him for anti-Semitic and neo-Nazi activities.

Goddard, who is black, told Cobb that he was 86 percent white, and then grinned as she told him he was also part sub-Saharan African as another guest laughed hysterically. Goddard denied the results and said, “This is called statistical noise,” to which Goddard smirked and said, “Sweetheart, you have a little black in you” and gave him a fist bump and called him “bro.” The audience cheered for Goddard as Cobb sat in his seat awkwardly.
