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

Also available on the nbc app

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.”
