I don't know whether this story fits on this forum, but it's so funny that I had to share it. I lifted the story from the November 11 version of the Huffington Post, an American internet newspaper.

A white supremacist behind an initiative to turn a town in North Dakota into a "white enclave" received some shocking news -- he's not 100 percent white. During an appearance on a television show called the Trisha Goddard Show, Craig Cobb, a man who's trying to start a community for white supremacists, was given the results of a DNA Diagnostics test and found out that he is 14 percent Sub-Saharan African.

I suspect he may have to rethink some of his ideas.

Do you have the source? Hitler was Haplogroup E after all http://www.eupedia.com/europe/Haplogroup_E1b1b_Y-DNA.shtml. Cob might have been partully decended from Neolithic Farmers but I could be wrong.

The story didn't have much detail, but since it said that the fellow had 14% Sub-Saharan African ancestry, I assume they were referring to autosomal DNA, rather than what his Y or mtDNA haplotype was.

The company which tested his results was DNA Diagnostics http://www.dnadiagnostics.com/. Surely a trustworthy firm!
