Missouri Christian College Endorses Police Violence

Missouri Christian College Endorses Police Violence

In a move reminiscent of the legal battle over whether processing marriage license applications for same-sex couples by a Christian county clerk being tantamount to her violating her deeply held Christian faith, a Christian college in Missouri declared they will terminate their relationship with Nike for including the persona of Colin Kaepernick in their "Just do It" campaigns. You will recall that he is the NFL player who protests police brutality especially of minority people.

The College of the Ozarks sends its message of tacit approval of police brutality and excessive killing of citizens whom they suspect are "a danger to them" for the mere appearance of dark skin even when they are handcuffed and knelt upon face down on the pavement or while running away from the threat of being killed by a violent police officer.

"College of the Ozarks plans to remove all athletic uniforms purchased from Nike or that contain the Nike emblem. Student athletes will no longer wear the brand in response to the company's new ad campaign," the private, Christian college said in a statement Wednesday. Certainly any student who chooses to continue to wear their Nike logoware can expect to be shunned, persecuted and possibly brutalized for acting contrary to the divine declarations of the "academic" leadership.

This move reinforces the college's position and perpetuates the stereotype that all Christian colleges are fundamentally racist and in favor of police brutality just because they are white and Christian.
