Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian has resigned from the company's board and urged Reddit to fill his spot him with a new black board member.

In a Tweet, Ohanian wrote: "I’m saying this as a father who needs to be able to answer his black daughter when she asks: 'What did you do?'".

Ohanian also announced he would donate all future gains on his Reddit stock to "serve the black community," and is immediately giving $1 million to Colin Kaepernick's racial-justice charity.
