Chicago: More than a hundred people took to the streets in central Chicago on Friday for the second year in a row, blocking entrance to Nike store on the iconic North Michigan Avenue to raise awareness about police misconduct towards minority groups.

Holding slogans like `Boycott Black Friday` and `Black Lives Matter`, protesters lined up in front of the Nike store in an attempt to stop people from entering, while police officers formed another line separating protesters from the store`s main gate and let customers through, Xinhua news agency reported.

The protest remained largely peaceful with occasional outburst of chanting like `No Justice, No Profits` and `CPAC (Civilian Police Accountability Council) Now` . 

Last year, more than 1,000 protesters took to the Chicago`s North Michigan Avenue on Black Friday to protest the fatal shooting of a black teenager by a white policeman.
