Alexis Ohanian Sr. Resigns From Reddit For Black Lives Matter
Alexis Ohanian Sr. Reddit: Numerous people from varying backgrounds are coming to join the Black Lives Matter movement and encouraging for change both locally and abroad. Today Alexis Ohanian Sr., who is the prime supporter of the popular site Reddit, has offered his resignation as a type of solidarity with the movement.
Ohanian, for those ignorant, is hitched to tennis player Serena Williams, and the two have a little girl together. Ohanian recalls his little girl in a video talking on his acquiescence:“Fifteen years ago I co-founded Reddit to find community and a sense of belonging, it’s long overdue to do the right thing. I’m saying this as a father who needs to be able to answer his black daughter when she asks: ‘What did you do?'”
He proceeded,”So, I’ve 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. And I’m starting with a pledge of $1 million to Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights camp.”
He finished: “I believe resignation can actually be an act of leadership from people in power right now. To everyone fighting to fix our broken nation: do not stop.”
