#4 The College of the Ozarks wants you to know it does not like Nike’s ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick.

The private Christian school located south of Branson, Missouri, said Wednesday that it would be dropping its affiliation with Nike over the Kaepernick “Just Do It” ad campaign. It’s not the first time the school has taken a stand with something Kaepernick-related.

Nike ‘promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America’
The school’s president Jerry Davis said Nike’s ads were promoting disrespect towards the United States.

“College of the Ozarks is unique among higher education institutions in America: no tuition is charged, all students work on campus, debt is openly discouraged, and no federal, state or private loans are made.”
