On Monday, the grand jury decided not to indict Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot 18-year old Michael Brown in Ferguson in August. The decision triggered a wave of protests nationwide.
Earlier this week, the network Blackout for Human Rights and other activists urged the public to boycott Black Friday, which is the day after Thanksgiving Day and the biggest shopping day of the year in the Unites States, to protest police violence against minorities.
