Alexis Ohanian – the co-founder of the popular platform Reddit, said on social networks that he is leaving the post on the board of directors of the company, which has held the past 15 years, in favor of the black candidate.
I do this for my own sake, for my family, and my country. I say this as a father who wants to have an answer to a possible question of his dark-skinned daughter: “What did you do in that situation?” – Alexis says in the video he published.
Also, Alexis transferred a million dollars in favor of Know Your Rights Camp activist Colin Copernicus’s youth legal education campaign and said he would continue to use his income to combat racial discrimination. Oganyan’s wife, tennis player Serena Williams, wrote on Instagram and Twitter that she was proud of her husband’s deed and was sure his daughter would later also.
