The correct answer is "Each person, regardless of age or background, has the right to krump." 'Has' is third person singular of the verb 'have.' This means that will be used in a sentence where the subject is another person (not yourself.) In this case, the subject is "person", which is singular and not yourself. What if the subject of this sentence was "people" instead of the person? We would use "have" because the subject is now plural!
