A UFC fighter claims that he is "legally allowed to say the word n*gga" after taking a DNA test.
Mike Perry, 26, took a test showing he's French, German, British and Irish. But he also has a trace of African ancestry, which is relatively common in DNA tests.

Some of the white people who learn they have some black ancestry look for a way to celebrate it.
As people pointed out on Twitter, Perry has enjoyed the full support of UFC boss Dana White, a Trump supporter who spoke on his behalf at the Republican convention.
