LEITH, N.D., Nov. 13 (UPI) -- A white supremacist attempting to take over a North Dakota town as a haven for racists was found by a talk show's DNA test to be part black.

Craig Cobb, who has said his purchase of property in the unincorporated village of Leith is aimed at making the town a haven for neo-Nazis and other white supremacists, appeared on Trisha Goddard's nationally syndicated talk show, "Trisha," and a DNA test he submitted to for the show revealed he was 14 percent Sub-Saharan African, the Bismarck (N.D.) Tribune reported Wednesday.

The episode, scheduled to air Nov. 18, features Goddard offering Cobb a fist bump upon revealing, "You've got a little black in you."

Cobb, who refuses the fist bump in clips released online, said he will not try to hide the results.

"I had no idea or I wouldn't have gone and done that and I still don't believe it," Cobb said.

The white supremacist said he is planning to take three more DNA tests for comparison and the results will be made public.

Cobb said he will not change his opinions on white supremacy and he plans to "continue on either way."

"Who knows, I can be an active border guard for people more pure than I," he said.

The DNA test would make Cobb ineligible for membership in his own racialist Creativity religion. He said he would not fault neo-Nazis for shunning him because it is their right to exclude others.
