Alexis Ohanian Resigns From Reddit & Urges Them To Replace Him With Black Candidate

Serena Williams’ husband Alexis Ohanian announced that he’s stepping down from his position at Reddit, which he co-founded. The caption reads in part, “I’m doing this for me, for my family, and for my country. I’m saying this as a father who needs to be able to answer his black daughter when she asks: “What did you do?” I have resigned as a member of the reddit board, I have urged them to fill my seat with a black candidate, and I will use future gains on my Reddit stock to serve the black community, chiefly to curb racial hate.”
