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.

Your thought and logic is so ingrained in supporting you're Latin American narrative. You are just too blind to see it" Is this all you can contribute with? So instead of sharing your facts you laugh uncontrollably trying to dissect my words so you can criticize anything of me or Latin America, and this does ... Read More

Mrs. A I am not about to fall into your rabbit hole of Deceit. you have been shown many times over.facts, Links, names of books to prove how your stance and your narrative is incorrect. By Design as part of your argument you refuse to accept them and continue to ask the same questions all over again. The child is you and will be treated as such.

Don't you see the irony?" Look, you are the one bashing Latin America and putting it down as if living in a 3rd world country is death. I have no problem if I have to live in Latin America, I'll move today if possible. I had lived in both Latin America and in the United States and they are ... Read More

I know of no Latin American country you can't go back to live today where you would be looked at harshly. I know of no country other than Cuba where the USA was involved that it caused people to flee and move to the USA. So, enlighten me? Or you can simply respond with nothing which will clearly show you just want to play being a victim

Yes, Spain wanted to honor Columbus but Spain couldn't against the power of Germany and other European countries who had already accepted that the continent be named "America".

Nice try. In today's time Latin America does not want to evolve, so they teach the same thing they have been teaching for 100 years. It's still a Latin propaganda

Taking the name of the continent is not really to evolve or progress.

The only true Americans are the Native Americans whether if they are from North, Central, or South America... You all should be proud of where your ancestors came from.. As for myself, my DNA says I am 75% Native American so yes, I have nothing but Native Pride...

But, the fact is that there was only one name for a continent and it is America." It would be much more exact to say that a single name "America" was used for unknown lands, incompletely explored, that turned out to be two continents and not just one. Names were adapted to reflect new and better knowledge as further explorations were undertaken. ... Read More

Not all countries in the world have changed the original one continent named America. And plus now people can see that the name "America" is not originally owned by the United States of America, but it is a name given originally to the new world and thus the new continent. One continent originally and not two.

Anonymous said: "Yes 3rd World countries that have no significance to our modern times" Are you upset that I had said something that makes sense? When you get upset you seem to always come up with these types of insults about the 3rd world being less than what you think. Power and money is not always a good living. You should try to have a peaceful life in Latin America enjoying the simple and humble people who live there and you will find out that you might be wrong in categorizing ... Read More

And I never said that "the name "America" HAS also BEEN a controversy for THE PAST 200 years". I said that the name 'America' WAS controversial FOR over 200 years, as Spain refused to accept it for over two hundred years, maintaining that Columbus deserved some recognition. This is something that you are fully aware of. The naming of the New world was a messy process, engaged in by competing powers and monarchs. It is all part of the historical context that you ...

The only map that has been shared here which I said it could have been interpreted in two ways is the one that was colored differently in many ways. There was one which was uploaded in this site with two different colors and this it was said to be two continents by someone and then we provided the same map with one color the ... Read More

But we have pointed out to you that in 1507 no one yet knew how many continents there were. They wouldn't even begin to know until 1513 when Balboa crossed the Isthmus of Panama. It wasn't confirmed until many years and many explorations later." Look, I am not the only one that brings out the map of 1507, you go and ask how America got its name in the web and ... Read More

I'm wondering if you're not from El Salvador. I don't know that, of course, but any number of things you have said over the months lead me to think so.
