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.

Anonymous says... by the way, Europe loves the Hispanics because of the hard work no complaint and good spirits. Sad that they are getting inundated with other people now that are the opposite of Hispanics. You will find them there too because they are well known to be the best hard workers in the world! jajaja While I cannot dispute the work ethics of "Hispanics" I must question the presence of "Hispanics" in Europe. Just how many "Hispanics" have gone from the ... Read More

AJ Says: "If it weren't for Black Americans fighting for Civil Rights in the 1960s, then you spics and wetbacks would still be in whatever 3rd world Latin Dump you came from. You do have a twisted way of seeing history. My grandfather came to study here in the U.S. before the 1960's and he was Hispanic. Many Hispanics did come to the U.S. My mother studied in the U.S. before the 1960's and she is Hispanic. You don't really know what you say sometimes because your hate ... Read More

You Hispanics are just a bunch of half-white coons who think that by being anti-black racists will get you on the good side of white supremacy, when in reality all the actual whites would still hate you because you have way more than one drop of injun blood. Keep it up, and both the whites, AND blacks will hate you useless bean eaters.

You dumb @$$ wetbacks like to brag about how you "work hard" for those racist crackers even though you earn LESS than educated blacks who were here long before your illegal @$$ crossed the border. Blacks work just as hard as wetbacks, the difference is that we aren't settling for low wages unlike you slaves. I ... Read More

The white man kidnapped us from Africa, and erased all of our history and culture, so we won't know where in Africa we came from. We not only had to rebuild our culture, but we also worked hard on the plantations with no pay. That's right: We have more rights to the American continent and name. You lazy redskins did nothing but screw around in your tents. We EARNED our way into this continent, and we ain't leaving, *****

jajaja you have a flawed conception on Latin Americans that you can't just dust off your mind. Whites decided that slavery was unjust and white men took blacks off their chains. Blacks did not have the power to do it themselves, so thanks the white men for that. Hispanics, Latin Americans visited the U.s. even when Slavery and after when segregation was in place, but Hispanics and Latin Americans were not slaves, they were free and could come into the country as visitors, students, and ...

Loved that "jajaja," reminded me of the club named "Jose's Jide-Away" in an ancient Beatles' tv cartoon series. The rest of your post, not so much.

Okay so go pick up strawberries, apples, and vegetables from 4am to 4pm everyday! Replace the wetbacks with your people and see if you can take it. The Hispanics, at least Central Americans, are very good workers. They work hard under harsh circumstances, they don't complain much and they are great cooks. This is why they are everywhere in this country because they are excellent workers. But if you think they are taking your jobs, well, then speak up and bring yourself to do what they do ... Read More

Absolutely!
But what does that have to do with the premise of this site?
I seriously doubt that anyone coming to the USA, legally or otherwise, cares about the name of their new nation of residence.

What too many people here realize is that the damage has already been done. In many parts of the world, the word "America" means a terrorist empire that bombs foreign countries just so they can steal their oil. Would you still want that name even after billions of people chant "Death to America" on a daily basis?

you know what? I agree with you that this is how the U.S. is known as America in many parts of the world. However, these people are being told this to incite them more more than being the reality. Sure, the U.S. used its force to do many things, but it has also done good around the world.

You are correct in saying that "In many parts of the world, the word 'America' means a terrorist empire that bombs foreign countries just so they can steal their oil." That, however, simply supports the fact that the USA is "America." So what's your point?

The point is exactly what you have stated. Why would anyone want to be known as an American if this nationality is hated worldwide. What I am asking is do these Latin Americans really want to have a demonym that isn't exactly the most loved in the world? They are better off using the demonym of the country they are from. I know most Canadians don't like being called American anyway, so the same should apply here.

Because the name America is used by the U.S. and since the U.S. is the nation that is hated around the world and it goes by the name, America because it likes to go by that name, then it has tainted the name America, but this does not mean it is the right name to go by. Like kleenex it has spread in countries like the middle east for example because they don't know better. Latin Americans don't like what happened to the continent's name thanks to the U.S. which has tainted it by ... Read More

If those idiot Brits weren't too busy molesting children to actually come up with a name for their colonies, then this issue wouldn't be a thing. Those Eurotrash just slapped "British" to America and called it a day. As there was nothing else for the people of America to call them selves, they just went off of that. At least the Spanish were creative when it came to naming their colonies, which then lead to names like Mexico, Argentina, and Costa Rica.
