It would appear you don’t understand the meaning of racism or overt. Overt Racism is for example what the Woke Left tries to teach in schools. That white people are inherently racist privileged oppressors and non white people are open minded, peaceful victims. Virtue based on skin color. The only other major Western political party to advocate teaching racial grievance theory in the classroom was the Nazi party. About as overtly racist as you can get.Leaving aside the Chinese question, and the overt racism on display in this thread.
There are plenty of people on this sacrosanct forum who'll buy fakes within the same spec parameters as stated by the OP other than the fact that they're not endorsed by Gibson. One can even post pictures of them to an adoring section of this most discerning Forum, sans the fake Gibson headstock logo of course, as though that disassociates the platform they're afforded from said larceny in anything other than the most tissue thin sleight of hand way.
I don't believe any of them are made in China.
Glass houses don't lend themselves to stone throwing.
I'm English, Made in America means absolutely fuck all to me.
Furthermore, it was Us, the English who saved the Les Paul from the toilet, our bands that brought your revered iconic guitar back to life, and back to you.
You're fookin welcome.
Separating people and dehumanizing them into identity collectives based on race is overt racism. Calling out a Communist authoritarian regime for crimes against humanity is the productive exercise of freedom of speech. But typical of the intolerant racist Woke Left, Uyghur genocide is invisible while Multimillionaire media and sports celebrities are oppressed.
Maybe that BS flies in some ivory tower safe space but it doesn’t fly in the real unwoke world friendo.
