Serena Williams’ husband and co-founder of Reddit, Alexis Ohanian has resigned as a member of Reddit’s board of directors.

On Friday, the Reddit co-founder and husband of Serena Williams announced he was stepping down from the company he helped create after 15 years to “do the right thing”.

Ohanian who made the announcement in a post he shared on Instagram, asked the management of the global forum to hire a black candidate in his stead. He also promised to use his future gains on Reddit stock to serve the black community.

The father of one wrote;

Quote
I co-founded @reddit 15 years ago to help people find community and a sense of belonging.?
It is long overdue to do the right thing. 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, and I’m starting with a pledge of $1M to @kaepernick7’s @yourrightscamp?

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.
