My Mommy's Neighborhood

My Mommy's Neighborhood -

What Do I Tell My Son about Mike Brown?

How do I tell my son that another young man has been gunned? How do I tell my son that so many have no remorse for harming a black male? How do I tell him that when out with friends that he has to be mindful that he can’t do what some of them can because the color of his skin is different? How do I tell him that he will be judged by the color of his skin despite his accomplishments. These and so many more questions plague me but I realize that we have to talk about it.

The murder of #MikeBrown haunts me because this is yet another example of the war on black america especially our males. It seems like just yesterday that we were talking about the murder of #TrayvonMartin. I told him about the case in a way that I hoped would not make him scared but I wonder if I said the right things. I watched the reports in tears as the community responded to the murder of an unarmed teen. Does it matter that he was one week away from starting college?

Today as much of the world waited on pins and needles so many of us knew what the grand jury verdict would be but I think we secretly wished we were wrong. I decided that I could not watch especially after it was stated that the anticipation was like Christmas eve. It was painfully obvious that we celebrate two different types of holidays. Tonight I will go to sleep and say a prayer for #Ferguson and all the non-white boys in America.


Shaggy Chic T-Shirts For Everyone

Welcome to our Shaggy Chic T-Shirt of the Month Club Sweepstakes~


Hosted By Tammie’s Reviews, Giveaways and More and Queen of Savings.


Sponsored By Shaggy Chic

If you are a pet lover and wear t-shirts, My guess is that you have a t-shirt or 2 with an animal on it. Shaggy Chic Apparel would like to introduce you to a purr-fectly fun and fashionable gift for animal lovers including the entire family … our woofalicious and kittytastic tees for pet lovers. A portion of all sales during this holiday season will benefit Don’t Forget to Feed Me, a Texas-based non-profit Pet Food Pantry.

We even have designs designed by a 10-year-old child from Texas, which we call our ‘Kid POV Collection’. Lauren Arnold has really shown and taught us the pure innocence and fun of animals through her eyes. We’re adding new shirts from her monthly. Take a peek at Lauren’s paw-some designs…

Imagine the looks and comments when people see your one- of-a kind tshirt. You can make this fun each month by changing the design and the words. Let your creativity shine through.

Only available online at, you won’t find these in big, box department stores, which means gift recipients will receive a howling unique gift. Now, that’s something to bark about! In addition to individual tees, we also offer a T-Shirt-of the-Month Club in both six-month and 12-month subscriptions. Each month, subscribers will receive a new tee that has not been sold to the public as of yet. Plus, customers can opt for free gift wrapping in a fun animal motif.
