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.

I find the owners of this site to harbor a racist ideology by promoting the name of a man who was proven to be a racist who opened the floodgates to slavery and racism.
Give me one reason why that White Devil Amerigo Vespucci deserves to be named after the continent he and his followers stole and destroyed.

Actually, "the owners of this site" do not promote "the name of a man who was proven to be a racist who opened the floodgates to slavery and racism," they only maintain that the name "America," regardless of its origin, refers to a single continent and by virtue of that, all who live there are "Americans."
While there are a number of valid reasons to criticize this site and its "owners," your is not one of them. Go to the top of the site and read.

If you want to name this place after that Eurotrash Devil Amerigo so bad, then at least spell AmeriKKKa right. That spelling is more accurate as it highlights the racist history of the countries of this continent.

Oh the terrible plight of the black man. Jews have been persecuted for centuries however they always fight to pull themselves up doing away with the woah always me, mindset. While raciscm definitely exists. It is the black man constantly at war with themselves along with their hand out believing they are owed something. Go figure.

Mrs. Anonymous (US) says... "Maybe if you take the blinds off you might understand what is original and what is a copy. The original is the continent and named "AMERICA" and the copy is the nation who took the name of the continent for itself." As I have pointed out so many times, the USA did not take "the name of the continent for itself." People in other nations around the world took the shortcut of referring to the USA as "America." I "just ... Read More

Maybe if you take off your white Supremecist blinds (no I don’t expect to see that happen) then you would see how racist the societies of the Western Hemispehere (I refuse to honor the legacy of that White Devil Amerigo) then you’d know what’s really going on.
Your white silence is no different to white acceptance, making you just as racist as any Trump voting KKK piece of sh!t. Read the REAL histories and not the fake narrative promoted by the Mongoloid Menace.
Get Woke.

I have, both before and after your suggestion that I "Read the REAL histories" have done so, but they were not compelling. The history of the Americas is no more a "fake narrative" than any other history, including yours. Please stop your racist rants here. There are plenty of other websites where you can spew your venom in context. FYI: I did not vote for Trump, and few of those who did are members of the KKK. Not to mention that, aside from your assumptions, you have no ... Read More

If it were as you suppose it is, then how come the U.S. did not stop that from happening but instead kept it up and embrace the name, that is taking the name of the continent, see it as you might, one way or the other, is the same thing, same action. The name was adapted/taken copied, otherwise the U.S. would had continued calling itself United States and not America.

You assume that there was a compelling reason for the U.S. to "stop that from happening," and as I have said before, that there was a way to influence people on a worldwide scale to change their ways.

"What is real for you is not real for me. Relativism. But you know I don't embrace relativism so one continent one America is real, the other stuff is made up after the real thing. And you can't deny that."
Oh yes I can. There is nothing "relative" about the geology of the American continents. It's rock-hard (LOL) fact.

Black Lives Matter is NOT a racist organization in any sense of the word. This site though, supports White Supremacy by honoring a genocidal racist with the name AmeriKKKa. Amerigo Vespucci, and others like him, deserve NO honor or fame.
Mansa Musa, Tupac Shakur, and the many slaves kidnapped from Africa and sent to a new land deserve the recognition, not the White Devils who initiated it.

Oh, but yes it is, in the "sense" it states that "Black" lives matter to the exclusion of any other lives.

After doing some research into the actual history of the Americas, I just want to apologize and admit that I was fed wrong and racist information. America really was named after Mansa Musa’s best sailor, Tupac Amaru, and that the celebration of our “Latino Heritage” really amounts to racism and ignorance on the scale of celebrating Southern Confederate Heritage. The Latinos has nothing to do with the discovery of America, as African explorers have been here long before even the Siberians ... Read More

The very fact that there are people in this world that support the name America shows the ignorance and racism that the so-called “Hispanics” still have. Amerigo Vespucci was nothing more than a greedy, genocidal maniac who did nothing to deserve his fame. The notion that “Hispanic” groups want to recognize him as a discoverer of a new world shows how anti-black Latinos are. This racist group of Mongoloid/European hybrids feel that their “whiteness” can make them home in America ... Read More

You are definitely an ignorant, full of hate, and rencor who does not know anything about peoples. You keep imagining that hispanics are all brown. You know why? because unless you open your horizons, you will never see your blinds. Here it is: there are white, blacks, brown, indians, mestizos, all types of colors within the Hispanics and so you don't have the base to start ranting on things you don't know.

Guess what they all have in common: They all benefit from White Supremecy. All these races are White Supremecist bootlickers who would put down black people just so they could get their approval from whites.
Blacks have no friends in this world. All other races are trying to put us down so as to gain White Approval.

You speak probably for a few blacks, the rest of the blacks are good citizens who have a life and a dream in this country and who have married whites, hispanics, chinese etc. Your race is not your problem, you are just throwing it as if it is, the problem. But the problem is that you are an unhappy person with the group you belong to, who knows maybe its just you. So, you do not talk for all good black people. I don't know where you come from or what you believe but you do not have all ... Read More
