The legal case over transgender rights hinges on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion and sex.

The latest available data are for 2005. In this year the rate in US White home born population had declined further to 1.3 compared with the UK figure which had remained static at 3.6 (see fig).

Get good grades, get a college degree, get internships, etc. I lived in Texas for the last 6 years and it the worst state I ever lived in.

Badly cut nuts are a norm for a lot of guitars regardless of manufacturer so I don hold it too much against them, but things like very obvious tooling marks on fretboard, binding and frets or frets that are not properly crowned are a very real issue. Finish issues range from paint over binding to bad orange peel effect on the finish and I even seen one that had the finish cracked along the back of the neck in multiple places, on a 3000 euro guitar that was not some “relic” model. Store obviously did not care enough to send it back so they are partly to blame for letting Gibson get away with it..
