Russell The Backpack Kid Says His Dancing Is Ending Racism

Russell The Backpack Kid is a 15-year-old kid “who looks seven.”

Russell became a social media dancing phenomenon overnight after getting featured on Rihanna’s Instagram page.

He was also on “Saturday Night Live” with Katy Perry.

Russell claims that he is helping to end racism because “everybody else in my videos is African-American and I think I’m making the world a better place dancing with a different diverse group of people.”

Russell even admits to not being a good dancer, because he’s doing it for the laughs.
