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.

Hi Arti, Good to see you back. I agree that this site needs much stricter monitoring, as well as log-ins and profiles. As it is, it's very difficult to discuss anything serious with the distraction of not only the hate speech, but the hate non-sense. OFBG is still here sometimes and maybe Mrs Anonymous might come back if only Admin would clean the place up. Cheers, Morgan

Hello Morgan, it is about time for the hosts to introduce account/profile registry on this site. It is getting out of hand with so many trolls, haters and half-truth preachers. If this continues the debate and this forum's original intention will be gone.

You really think Mrs. Anonymous has something valuable to add? If so, what?

Yes, I do. Concerning many things, she is not, strictly speaking, wrong. Mainly, though, her arguments offer a good look into the thought behind this site and can lead us to counter-arguments.

Mrs. Anonymous is a Trumptard that hates California simply because our state has Spanish town names. I don't want to see any more posts from her.

@ California (US)

Would you be so kind and tell me when she typed that kind of stuff?

Hating California because its cities have a Spanish background is childish, I see no debate in "hate", if one does not show proper arguments of why certain disdain is there. That's like a child throwing a tantrum.

Arti, while I must agree with your desire to stay on topic, I cannot agree that "the initial purpose of this forum was to debate the terms 'America' and 'USA'," or as stated on the webpage, "that this page in not about demonyms (gentilics) but about the way to call a country." The basis for this website would not exist except for its originator's unstated ideas about "race, ethnicity and xenophobia" as well as ... Read More

The African Americans are the only TRUE Americans. We were stolen from our homelands and forced into slavery for 500 years. We actually BUILT up this land on the sweat off our backs. You redskins ain't do shiit. Don't fuсKing dare tell us blacks what to call ourselves. You spics and injuns can hold your own, so don't be coming to us for some "brotherhood" bull shiit.

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

Preserving your race? I'm not black but I lived in Africa for 4 years. You wouldn't survive two days there and you'll be dying to come back to the American continent where your life is better than anywhere else in the world. You complain about "racism" when in fact the rest of us have moved on. Sad that you haven't.

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.

Mexicans didn't enslave African Americans the Europeans did it. Mexicans were also slaves to the Spanish when they took their land, but then
they fought for independence.

Latin America is filled with native Indian/Americans who were here before the blacks were brought to the continent. The Spanish used the Indians as slaves much more than the blacks.

Your hate makes you dumm. The Spaniards used mostly Indians as slaves so go and rant at the Portuguese who are not Spanish but Portuguese and speak a different language. Brazil was not a Spanish colony. Did you know that?
