USA is not America

Indeed, U.S.A. is not America!

America is the name of a whole continent. United States of America means that the United States belongs to America and NOT that America belongs to the United States. So, next time you want to refer to The United States of America, you can do it as U.S. or the States or whatever you want but not as only America. Gotcha?

America

How should I use the term America then?

Here we will show you some wrong and correct uses of the term America:

  • This is how we do it in America.
  • This is how we do it in the States.
  • America is my country and I love it.
  • The United States is my country and I love it.
  • America lost the Vietnam war.
  • U.S.A. lost the Vietnam war.
  • Here in America we love Mc Donald's.
  • Here in the U.S. we love Mc Donald's.

Please, note that this page in not about demonyms (gentilics) but about the way to call a country.

Black First. The racist Hispanics will not get any sympathy from me at all. My black people come first. I speak with men and women that are concentrating on black empowerment and the preserving of our race. To hell with THESE RACIST DEVILS

No black and brown pride here. ***** them wetbacks. You are the products of rape, and have no problem acting like their rapist white fathers. Spics are worse than whites. Always have been, always will be.

You stupid Latino apes can't even spell AmeriKKKa right. It's as if that sweet Spanish blood gives you the right to oppress the Blacks that live on this terrible continent. It's spelled AmeriKKKa becase racist white devils and their beaner bootlickers use this land to enslave the black man.

Black on black slavery has been going on for thousands of years in Africa. The slave-owners in Africa sold African slaves to the world.
The White men, ended slavery.

Whites ended slavery (eventually) in the West, but what did they do to stop the trade elsewhere? When and why did "Black on Black slavery" cease completely? I'm not a bleeding-heart Liberal nor a BLM supporter, but I do believe that trying to minimize the crimes of Whites enslaving Blacks by citing the same practices among Blacks has no merit. It's a bit like apologizing for the Holocaust by citing the Armenian genocide by the Turks or the USA's wars against American ... Read More

No. The context is to make the person realize that not only the whites had slaves or sold slaves, but the blacks in Africa did too so this person saying that he/she would go after the white men for doing that, then if that is the reason to go after men then he/she would also have to go after blacks as well. So it is not all about race, as this person seems to think, but it has to do much about power. So I am not excusing the white men, I am also including the blacks who where slave traders as ...

Jewish, Catholics, Asians, the so-called white ethnic community, the Native Americans(Indians), Asian Indians, the whole LGBT community, the feminists are getting their negro moments as well, not just Muslims and Latinos. They’re the ones who have antiblack views. You all had better watch your backs because we are coming for you...

I have seen few opinions equal to your comment. Who are the "we" coming for (you) us?
What is/who are this "white ethnic community" of which you speak?
Yes, all of the groups you mention have had their -using your words - "negro moments." Are you informed enough to know of the essay "The Student as *****" from the 1960s?
Can you understand that what you find offensive is not racism, but general ignorance, and its stepchild, bigotry?

Not one Hispanic or Latino group speaks of banding together with blacks when there is no white attacker putting them on the defensive. In fac,t it’s the exact opposite. They are reveling in whatever hate filled rant a white pinhead is distilling on African-Americans to their little hearts content. What makes you Hispanic so special when you never experienced what the Black American has? (Yeah, I called myself black American, you dirty bean eaters. Fight me.)

You've obviously never been to Cuba or Brazil where Hispanic blacks live. You gonna call them "spics" too?

That is correct, Hispanics and Latinos are an ethnic group and within that ethnic group there are whites and blacks. The Latino and Hispanic accounts for approx. 17%.of the U.S. population.

In the vernacular of where I grew up (NY Metro area) "spics" were Puerto Ricans.

For your info:
of the estimated 10 million Africans brought to America/the new world only about 5% came to the USA, 35% went to Brazil, and the rest to other colonies in America, and the Caribbean.

You non-black immigrants to America owe a HUGE debt to African Americans. We FOUGHT for our freedom against our White slave masters, we didn't fight for you spicks to break into our country and call yourselves AMERICAN. We EARNED that right, while you dirty bean farters were too busy licking white *****. Go call yourselves the name of whatever third-world trashheap you came from, but leave AMERICAN alone as that has a certain meaning for the slaves who cough the White Man on this Continent. ...

Spewing racism and hatred will not clear your mind and you will not realize that the White men/women were there for the blacks and indians to help them and free them. Perhaps you should read more history. The history that the liberals/democrats have twisted so that black people vote for them forever and sad thing is that black people vote for them not knowing that they will not advance in life voting for democrats. The Democrats were the slave owners, don't you know? The Republicans, fought ... Read More

You also are wrong in thinking America is only the United States. America is the name given to the new continent. Anyone living in the continent of America is an American. Latin "AMericans" are Americans...Latin stands for those Americans who speak a language derived from Latin and or the Countries where these people live. Latin America is in America as U.S. is in America.
