Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanyan
Alexis Ohanyan, 37, co-founder of the online platform Reddit, announced on social media that he was leaving the company’s board of directors. He called on the management of the company to take a black man in his place. For example, the husband of the 38-year-old tennis player, Serena Williams, reacted to the anti-racist actions that continue in the United States after the death of George Floyd, 46.
Ohanyan supported the demonstrators and decided to leave his post to set an example for other businessmen. Two years ago, Alexis already moved away from the daily work in the company, which he founded 15 years ago, and now the board of directors is also leaving. According to the entrepreneur, one of the reasons for this decision was his family.

I say that as a father who must have an answer for his black daughter when she asks, “What have you done?” I left the Reddit board and urged its members to take a black man for me, ”Alexis wrote on Instagram.
