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.

90% of the American continent is Spanish or Latino. The only two countries that are Anglo are the US and that waste of space Canada. How about going back to England and leave the rest of the continent alone you worthless gringos?

Or better yet, all you people who don't want to assimilate to the ways of the USA also known As America and Americans can move south of Texas all the way down to Tierra del Fuego and build your own Utopia. Why stay in the USA if you hate it so much? Start with Mrs A.

You are one to speak about ASSimilation. The gringos moved into Texass, New Mexico, Arizona, and California when they were Mexican states, and you tried to impose your gringo "culture" on ththe natives, and then stole those states and made them yours. Now the only culture those beautiful places now have is gringo hillbilly. You ruined everything unique about those places.

Look at your history kid. Mexico sold that land. Maybe they (Mexico) shouldn't have started a war they couldn't win

False. If this were the case, the US would be the "United States of North America".

It should have been named the United States of Carolina because that useless limey King Charles lost all of his land to an even more useless "nation". But you idiots decided to irrational hate on England because "muh freedumbs". One moment you like those Eurotrash, another moment, you hate them. Make up your mind. And yes, I am from New Mexico but our state was stolen from these same idiots, so don't hate me for being from the US, respect me for tolerating the BS that ... Read More

This is one of the more incoherent and unintelligent posts that we've seen on this site, obviously from an incoherent and unintelligent poster. And that's really saying something.

North America comes from America
South America comes from America
Central America comes from America
If you remove the cardinal directions what does it say? America.
So North and South are America plus Central too. Do you see North Virginia? North Columbus? No because the name is America.
Now that I mentioned North Virginia, is that clearly the north of Virginia or not?

No, it is not. The area you have in mind is called "northern Virginia" and it is not a separate entity. There is a West Virginia, however, and it is indeed a separate entity, a separate state. The same for the Carolinas, the Dakotas, and...the Americas, North and South, two separate entities, two distinct continents.

There was an America before there was a nation.
America was the continent where the nation of the U.S. was born. And America does not belong to the U.S. only, it belongs all the countries in America.

You can refer to it as America because that does not specify north America, South America or central America. Case closed

America is Central America, North America, South America. And : Central America, North America, South America are all in "America".
North America: is the north of America.
South America: is the south of America.
Central America: is the center of America.
These together specify the continent of America.

No such thing as one continent America. Maybe only in a Latin American driven narrative where they refuse to progress with the times.

No, unless there was some tricky movement where a nation took the name of a continent without the consent of the other countries. You can say whatever they teach you but one thing you can't say is that the name was not the continents nor that it is a name not given to a nation nor the nation(US) was even around when the name was given to the continent. The division of America as North and South is done in favor of the U.S. in order to claim the name AMerica for itself. So that people like ... Read More

Do you suffer from impossibility of understanding the obvious? I think the only words you have mastered in your life are the few that you have posted in here. And some are only insults. The funny thing is that you have something against people but not against the issue otherwise you would be talking more about it rather than only insulting.
