Kaepernick was the first athlete to kneel during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest police brutality against blacks and hasn't played a game since 2016. However, Canterbury said that is exactly what law enforcement is fighting to protect. "Stay that way, because what nonbelievers fail to understand is that calling a dream insane is not an insult, it's a compliment". In our experience, boycotts and similar exercises do not succeed and often serve only to enrich the company - which is not what we want to do.

"Investors on Robinhood are buying Nike stock 300% more than they are selling, compared to 12% last week", Sahill Poddar, the app's data scientist, told Business Insider on Tuesday.

Canterbury did not hold back when speaking about the right to free speech.

The advert, titled "Dream Crazy", has Kaepernick narrating over images and footage of various athletes with inspirational stories, including National Basketball Association icon LeBron James, tennis star Serena Williams and Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge.

On Wednesday, Nike posted one of it's commercials featuring Kaepernick, called "Dream Crazy". "Even if it means sacrificing everything" - a move that was seen by some as controversial.

Looks like Nike is "sacrificing everything" including sales after rolling out an ad featuring Anthem-kneeler Colin Kaepernick.

This isn't the first stand that College of the Ozarks has made around the protests made popular by Colin Kaepernick a few years ago.

Kaepernick, who watched Williams' third-round win over sister Venus at Flushing Meadows, has filed a grievance against National Football League team owners he claims conspired not to hire him because of his protests. "I guarantee they could get more from a smile on a child's face than a symbolic burning of a pair of shoes".

Kaepernick shared the ad to his Twitter page on Monday, which showed a black and white image of his face with the caption, "Believe in something".
