Oh god, I love these kind of stories!
Craig Cobb submitted to a DNA test as part of an ongoing Race in America series on the syndicated “Trisha Show,” and host Trisha Goddard delivered some surprising test results to the 62-year-old hate crimes fugitive from Canada in an episode that will air Nov. 18.Maybe we should all have our DNA tested at birth, you know so we start out knowing No Body is Pure White or Pure Black or Pure anything any more, if they ever were. Seems it might stop some of the Hating at the get go.
As her studio audience laughed with delight, Goddard, who is black, told Cobb that test results revealed his genetic ancestry was 86 European and 14 percent sub-Saharan African.
Cobb took in the news with a fixed grin before looking around, as if for assistance, and insisted the results were nothing but “statistical noise.”
As the audience continued roaring its approval, Goddard said: “You have a little black in you.”
But Cobb disagreed.
“I’ll tell you this,” Cobb said. “Oil and water don’t mix.”
