Name one country that has the name America in it. It's literally written into their constitution and declaration of independence, their currency and all their monuments. Unless you want all those things to change, you're just hitting your head against a wall. Get over yourselves.

Cuba, Dominican Republic, Jamaica are Caribbean Islands not in Central America. Central America are only Guatemala, San Salvador, Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. North America, South America, Central America and the Islands of the Caribbean all of these are part of the new world called America in one continent plus its islands.

So, how islands like Japan are not in the Asian continent? Do not be clumsy! The Caribbean islands at the regional level belong to Central America.

I think if you insist others use the correct terminology for "America", you must use the correct English grammar. Wouldn't you agree?

Technically if the writers of the declaration of independence had of paid attention it should have been 'THE UNANIMOUS DECLARATION of the thirteen UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA'. America is a shortened version of North America. In modern English, North and South America are generally considered separate continents, and taken together are called the Americas in the plural. The United States has adopted the use of "America" in all of its forms. As in I am an America, I live in ... Read More

The countries listed as part of Central America are incorrect. The ones listed are islands, with the exception of Panama, which is located in Central America. The others are not connected to a continent and are located in the Caribbean.

Countries located in Central America include Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica, as well as Panama listed above.

[I]Greenland is not in North America. Greenland is considered a separate continent. Cuba is not in Central America. It's a Caribbean country as are the Dominican Republic and Jamaica. At least you got South America correct. Fix your grammar. "America is a land, America covers...not cover, etc."

Greenland is not a separate continent. It is the world's largest island. It belongs to Denmark I believe.

Actually, although connected politically with Denmark, Greenland is actually part of America, as are the Caribbean islands....just as Corsica and Ireland are part of Europe.

This is a White Supremecist website no better than the KKK or Stormfront. It is promoting the idea that White Spanish people "discovered" a new continent populated by the descendants of Siberian cavemen. This racist thought erases the accomplishments of the Black African explorers who were the first to live here, including America's namesake, Tupac Amaru. This racist site needs to be taken down.

A less known fact about Amerigo Vespucci (Americus) is that he was christened Alberigo. He chose to change his name to Amerigo after his voyages to honour a place where he had been, called "Amerique". Waldseemüller did not know this. Why Vespucci called it Amerique is not known, but we know that Vespucci never went to North America or even claimed to have gone there. There are two major theories: 1, that Vespucci got the name from John Cabot's English expedition that had landed ... Read More
