The controversy over the protests began in 2016, when Kaepernick began refusing to stand during the anthem to protest racial injustice. Not in a meaningful way, at least.

Where was the similar outrage back in 2011, when Nike endorsed another controversial National Football League player-Michael Vick-after he'd gone to prison for running a dog-fighting operation during which he killed several dogs himself?

University president Dr. Emir Caner old 11 Alive that he doesn't think the small, 2,600 student university will hurt Nike's sales much, but says that he made the decision on principle. Well, that's not what's happening, and anyone who's been waiting for Nike to collapse is not only NOT getting what they want, they are also getting laughed in the face by Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.

What fell has risen and moved forward, stepped up and continued to climb. Nike's shares first dropped, then bounced back past their pre-woke levels.

Shares of the world's largest athletic apparel company, Nike Inc.

That is better than the 17 percent rise over the same period in 2017, according to data from Edison Trends. President Donald Trump said on Twitter last week about Nike's new ad featuring Colin Kaepernick.

A recent Morning Consult poll found that Nike's favorability plummeted across all consumer groups after the debut of the new "Just Do It" ads featuring Kaepernick.

The polarized reaction to Nike's Colin Kaepernick advertisement continues as another college has severed ties with the brand, even as Nike sees increased sales numbers, according to CBS News. I know there are a number of high schools and colleges who are dropping Nike.

But the poll suggests the cost of alienating some potential consumers has paid off in forging stronger support among its most loyal customers.

Trump also called the Nike campaign "a terrible" message in an interview with the Daily Caller, saying "maybe there's a reason for them doing it, but I think as far as sending a message, I think it's a awful message and a message that shouldn't be sent".

Quinnipiac University on Thursday released a poll of over 1,000 US voters nationwide, asking participants whether they approve or disapprove of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem before games.
