Chris Sligh, who I felt was the best of the guys this year, was ousted out of the competition. Chris did have an off night as I stated in my previous article, however, it wasn't bad enough that he should be gone, and Sanjaya reins on. Sanjaya will not last it is coming down to numbers and each week that one more goes, there fans will allocate those votes to someone and it won't be with Sanjaya.
I would also like to add, that when Ryan came out with a Mohawk as a prank, many found it humorous, however! The style of the Mohawk means " The struggle" as the dread locks mean to African Americans, Canadians, West Indians, also meaning " The struggle" ... The Struggle against racism, cultural genocide, slavery, apartheid,inequality,discrimination!...
If one is going to sport a Mohawk, at least know the reason why the style existed.. It is not fad, mod, chick, or fashion; it represents a nation’s strife, despair and struggle.
There are many examples of Native struggle, read on the residential Schools in Canada or Government Boarding Schools in the United States. This was all colonization and an attempt to commit culturel genocide and take “The Indian out of Natives" by both the Government of the United States and the Government of Canada. (Other countries such as Britain also took part in the decimation of Natives and Africans) Look into how many natives still live in impoverished conditions in Canada and the United States. They can live with no running water, no heat, and no light. Does this sound FAMILIAR TO YOU? sure IT DOES! In America and Canada many African Americans and Canadians live in the same conditions to date! I think that the symbology of the Mohawk is fitting with Chris because of the struggle of how people view people that don't LOOK like a God. What Chris had was talent, personality and humour. Something that Simon would overlook in favour of barbie and ken dolls!
