Leith white separatist could actually be 14 percent black
November 11, 2013 - Andrea Johnson
Here's an interesting tidbit about the white separatist in Leith: he's actually 14 percent Sub-Saharan African, according to the Daily Mail.
Craig Cobb apparently underwent DNA testing as part of a segment on Race in America done by The Trisha Show, which airs here on the FOX channel. Cobb apparently dismissed the test result out of hand and claimed it is only "statistical noise." He also refused to fist bump host Trisha Goddard.
Cobb is attempting to buy up land in Leith and persuade others like him to move there and create a white enclave. Long time residents of the town object to his presence.
Cobb, of course, looks like a pretty average white guy and, if his test results are anything to go by, he is of 86 percent European descent. Still, 14 percent is not insignificant and, based on what I know of DNA testing, it's far too great a percentage to be mere "statistical noise." When I had my own DNA tested through the company 23andme, my results showed that I have 0.4 percent Sub-Saharan African ancestry, which might be equivalent to having one black ancestor living at the time of George Washington or earlier. Two centuries is a long time. I have no idea who that black ancestor might have been and I have been able to find no records that might identify the many times black great-grandparent, though I suspect he or she belongs to the branch of the family that lived in North Carolina around 1800.
Cobb's 14 percent Sub-Saharan ancestry, on the other hand, very likely means he has some very recent black ancestors, probably near enough for others in his family to have had some inkling that they do have black ancestry and who Great-Grandpa might have been.
So what turns a guy like that into a white separatist? What a sad and twisted man Cobb must be.
