College of the Ozarks drops Nike over Colin Kaepernick ad

He said Nike's endorsement deal with Kaepernick sends "a bad message".

They further found the key demographics Nike was targeting, "younger generations, Nike users, [and] African Americans", saw a decrease in their favorability view among the groups.

As Colin Kaepernick watched from Nike's OR headquarters on Thursday night, the sports apparel giant aired its highly anticipated ad featuring the quarterback known for his social protests during the National Football League season opener.

Kyle said that she doesn't believe that Kaepernick sacrificed anything of substance as a result of spearheading the national anthem protests.

He may claim he's being persecuted for being politically active - he originated the controversial national anthem kneeling actions, after all - but he's received bigger and more successful offers since then.

Boyer, who also briefly played in the NFL for the Seattle Seahawks, encouraged Kaepernick to kneel during the playing of the national anthem after Kaepernick first began protesting for minorities' equal treatment and police brutality in 2016. "We also believe that those who know what sacrifice is all about are more likely to be wearing a military uniform than an athletic uniform".

"I don't think it's appropriate what they did", he said.

Kaepernick is unsigned by any NFL team, and is now suing the league for allegedly blackballing him over his protests. "Because what nonbelievers fail to understand is that calling a dream insane is not an insult; it's a compliment".

The Nike advert highlighting the former 49ers quarterback locked in a grievance with the league aired during the first ad break in the third quarter of the Eagles-Falcons game.

A Missouri college has dropped Nike gear from their athletic teams over the company's decision to use Colin Kaepernick in their new advertising campaign. The latest estimates put the value of the media exposure from the campaign at more than $163 million, according to Apex Marketing Group - nearly four times the $43 million tallied in the first 24 hours since the ad debuted.

"If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do, good".
