Woods, who has been with Nike since turning pro in 1996, praised Nike for doing something "beautiful" and "special".

Sep 7, 2018; Newtown Square, PA, USA; Tiger Woods walks to the 11th hole tee box during the second round of the BMW Championship golf tournament at Aronimink GC.

"If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do, good. Some pretty powerful people in the spot".

The College of the Ozarks, based in Point Lookout, made a decision to cut ties with Nike just days after the Oregon-based company unveiled the new campaign featuring the controversial football player, according to The Associated Press.

Former San Francisco 49er Kaepernick sparked a national debate when he knelt during the national anthem in the 2016 NFL season to protest racial injustice and police brutality. "Just do it." Kaepernick, who provided the voice-over for the ad and appeared toward the end of it, has been out of the National Football League since becoming a free agent in March 2017, and he has filed a grievance against the National Football League that accuses team owners of colluding to ostracize him because of his activism and his central connection to the protests that some players have continued.

Radebe said that the fuel price was driven by global factors - such as the rand exchange rate, the worldwide price of crude oil. In Delhi, a litre of petrol now costs Rs 79.31, in Mumbai Rs 86.72, Chennai Rs 82.41 and Kolkata 82.22.

"As far as Kaepernick and all that's concerned, we all have the freedom of speech and he's using it in a way that's non-violent which is something you just have to respect as an American", he said.

Nike stock fell more than 3% when it announced the endorsement deal with Kaepernick. "They came out with a campaign that they feel is who they are".

The College of the Ozarks, a private Christian school in Point Lookout, Missouri, that competes in sports at the NAIA level, said it will remove all uniforms purchased from Nike that contain the brand's logo.

On Thursday night Colin Kaepernick will officially, in front of a national audience, become the undeniable face of the the company's Just Do it Campaign.

"I think every athlete, every human, and definitely every African-American should be completely grateful and honored (for Kaepernick)", Williams said.
