College of the Ozarks drops Nike over new

Kaepernick, a former quarterback with the San Francisco 49ers, rose to prominence after electing to kneel during the U.S. national anthem to protest racial injustice. He was the first to kneel during the national anthem to highlight racial and social injustice.

Nike this week unveiled the latest "Just Do It" campaign starring former San Francisco 49ers star Kaepernick, with one image reading: "Believe in something".

Watch Hannity's mini-monologue above, plus Tomi Lahren asking Californians what they think about Nike's Kaepernick ad campaign.

"I mean, I ain't Phil Knight, I'm not on the Nike board, but hopefully man". It's amusing watching a company that uses child slave labor overseas to make their products all of a sudden become humanitarians. Tillman died while serving in Afghanistan. The actions had a polarising response from those who respect what Kaepernick is doing to those who claim he is disrespecting the military, including President Trump.

President Trump predicted Wednesday that Nike would suffer losses due to its decision to feature an NFL-kneeler. "He said the hardest part was watching his fellow soldiers get beat up and killed in front of him and he couldn't defend them because it would have cost him his life", he said. Kaepernick has accused the National Football League of colluding to keep him from playing since March 2017 - when he became a free agent - because of his activism.

In a letter to Nike, Sonia Pruitt, who chairs the association, criticized other police groups for calling for a boycott against the company.

Kaepernick finishes the ad by saying: "Don't ask if your dreams are insane". Some people have said they are now more likely to buy Nike because of the apparent social stance while others sent the hashtag #BoycottNike trending.

"Serena Williams. her catsuit and them supporting it and now seeing them pick up Colin Kaepernick".
