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 think this site is filled with trolls who just want to make a point that whatever one writes they don't like even when it is a quote from a book or a site and it is what they must have missed in their history class.

Probably alot of liberals communist who are using their tactics to discredit one person even though this person says the truth. But that is how they think and act. Sad moment for the history of the United States, where have we come to with this people?

So you think Liberals are the problem then, right? Liberals are the ones who are actually trying to fix the United States. Racist retards like you are trying to ruin the country. Idiot Trump worshippers like you deserve to get deported, probably back to Germany where those deplorable Nazis came from.

Nah, and you are wrong I am not bashing the United States. I am a very patriotic citizen of the U.S. and just because I see an issue with the name "AMerica" does not mean I hate the U.S.

You still are a racist anti-Black who won’t admit to how racist and ignorant it is to name a new continent after an evil White Devil who tried to genocide the original inhabitants of this land. You would have to be massively ignorant to think this spic is worthy of being remembered.

100% of Americans are descended from immigrants. The 'natives' came from 'West Asia'. The rest mostly came the other way around.

Every single country on these two continents were founded on slavery and oppression. The so-called “Hispanics” brought slavery to these lands.
These same “people” are trying to silence the Black voice and promote the voice of the Hispanics, who really are just Mongoloid/European bаstards with no real culture or history.
There is no pride in being American or from North and South America

For that matter, the whole history of the world has been people oppressing people through slavery of different races and colors of peoples not just blacks. So for your info, all races have been used for slavery not just your race, but all. You should read more history. Trying to portrait the victim does not help you get out of the hole you digging yourself with that hatred. Slavery was rampant for every race, every color, and everywhere in the world not just in America.

"In 1507, Martin Waldseemüller produced a world map on which he named the new continent America after the feminine Latin version of Vespucci's first name, which is Americus." WIKIPEDIA.

No he didn't. America was named after one of Mansa Musa's most acclaimed sailors...Tupac Amaru. America was NOT named after some greedy Italian who helped commit the genocide of the original African ancestors who lived here long before the Europeans and Asian took over the continent.

According to your legend, who coined it with the name "America" then? Who mapped it? Tup ac Ama ru was a Peruvian indigenous who fought against the conquerors. There is another legend that the name comes from America itself from the mountains in Nicaragua. The tribe the Amerrisque is known to be a windy place and also a place where gold abounded. The Spanish navigators, like Alberigo Vespucci went there to see the gold that they were told existed there and so after coming back to ... Read More

Look, as far as the world knows, what was accepted as fact is the story of Columbus and Amerigo. IF your story was not, it is because it didn't make ripples at all. Many people came to the New world before it was published all over by the map of 1507. So it works like the news today, before it comes out in the news, many people don't know about the news, so Amerigo Vespucci and German Waldseemuller were like the news of that time and they made the news of a new world and named America. ...

So you are justifying the existence of these LIES because WHITE PEOPLE said it’s the truth? This is the type of ignorance that furthered Anti-Black racism on this continent. You will refuse to acknowledge the accomplishments of Black Americans in the Americas because some white men said that’s not true...and are stealing these accomplishments while claiming WHITE PEOPLE did it. You Latinos do not want to get rid of your so-called “Honorary White” status so you stick to these LIES as ... Read More

You have a serious problem with your self esteem. Maybe that is why you think that white men are the way you portray them to be. Africans had their moment earlier in history when Egypt was an empire and they had slaves..they had Arabs as slaves, they had the Isralites as slaves, but you don't see that do you? Your own kind are slave traders in Africa, they were the ones selling your people to the world! That was your people's way of making money, the commodity of your land was slave ... Read More
