Many people are wondering what is Russell Wilson’s ethnicity. In an interview on the fresh files (view here on YouTube) Russell himself explains it quite well. He is mostly African American with some Native American ancestry, he even goes on to say he has a little bit of everything in him. An interesting fact is that his great-great-grandfather was a slave to a confederate colonel and was freed after the Civil War Ended.
