Colleges Have Decided To Stop Selling Nike Gear After Colin Kaepernick

Nike's new ad campaign has Colin Kaepernick, the NFL quarterback who knelt during the U.S. national anthem to protest against racial inequality.

Some people are burning Nike products to protest the company's making Kaepernick one of the faces of its 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign.

The company drew immediate backlash after releasing a print ad that stated, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything".

In 2016, Kaepernick, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback was the first to take the stance during the national anthem, as a demonstration against the treatment of black Americans by authorities.

A private Christian college in Point Lookout, Mo., vowed to remove all uniforms featuring the Nike logo after the brand's ad with Colin Kaepernick was unveiled this week.

He said Nike didn't consult his opinion on the ad that featured Kaepernick.

President Donald Trump weighed in on the matter on Twitter, asking "What was Nike thinking?"

And as the NFL season season begun, people continued to protest by kneeling during the national anthem.

In a statement, college president Jerry C. Davis accused Nike execs of "promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America" with the Kaepernick campaign.

According to WSET, "President Jerry Falwell Jr. says the school wants to find a supplier that supports veterans, the USA flag, American values and law enforcement". But I think as far as sending a message, I think it's a awful message and a message that shouldn't be sent.

But I think that Kaepernick's grievance against the league for colluding to keep him out, which is now going to a formal hearing, is a big deal, and one that will continue to keep the question of his unemployment under serious scrutiny. He is now taking a case against National Football League owners over alleged collusion not to sign him due to his social activism.
