White supremacist leader Craig Cobb has learned that he is what he hates, at least in part.
The former Vancouver resident and dual-citizen, who is seeking to establish a neo-Nazi enclave in the small town of Leith, North Dakota, discovered in an interview on the U.K.'s "Trisha Show" that he is actually 14 per cent Sub-Saharan African, The Daily Mail reported.
Cobb underwent a DNA test as part of the show's Race in America series and host Trisha Goddard gave him the results on air. He immediately dismissed them as "statistical noise."
"Sweetheart, you have a little black in you," Goddard responded, prompting loud cheers from her audience.
"I tell you, oil and water don't mix," Cobb said. The host then tried to fist-bump her guest but he refused.
The 62-year-old man, who was arrested for allegedly promoting hate in 2010, made headlines earlier this year when it emerged that he had bought up 12 properties in Leith with the intention of establishing a haven for white nationalists, The Province reported in August.
Cobb told followers that Leith is a town that "we can politically control post haste." He said people moving to the town would have to fly one racialist banner, such as a Nazi flag, for 24 hours a day and register as a resident so they can elect people to council.
But Cobb's plans have run into difficulties as the town council has passed a number of measures that could prevent him from realizing his vision, The Toronto Sun reported.
Those measures include a moratorium on new construction, as well as a series of ordinances including preventing people from living in a trailer for more than 10 days straight, and forcing Cobb to install water and sewage in the buildings he owns within 30 days, The Daily Mail reported last week.
