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?

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.

No Canadian ever calls himself an American.

I'm from Canada, one of the many country states in America, and goes without saying that I'm an American.

The continent of America ( nor its subcontinental parts) were not named after the United States. If this is too difficult to understand, perhaps its because you been fed too much egotistical nationalist propaganda dressed as education

North America is th nothern region of America, South America is the southern region of America, they are appropriately called subcontinental regions of the continent of America. The fact that U.S. nationals want the name of America/American exclusively for your selves doesn't change this fact. America/American is the continent/people of the New World. It was the name coined in 1507 for the New World (which includes the mainland of the continent, the Caribbean,and Greenland). America does not equal the U.S. of KKK. Deal with it

North America and South America are two continents.

America/American is the continent/people of the new world, named so by Martin Waldseemuller in 1507. North, and South America are subcontinental regions of the continent of America. The continent of America was not named after the U.S. of KKK

My kitty just *censored* on the carpet, and it looks like America, you know all fifty states.

Jesus Christ is depicted in many races. There are images of white Jesus, black Jesus, Chinese Jesus. It all depends on where you live and/or which church you go to.

24th Jul, 2:46 PM
Even Jesus Christ was imaged as white, blond, blue eyes, tall, and facially european, to be deemed acceptable by whites.

U.S. gringos psych is that of a child that can't help but want everything for its selve, and only for its self. Even something as pitiful as trying to elaborate and push a propaganda to its people and around the world in an effort to coopt the name of the continent of America. Named so in 1507.

The issue here isn't geography, the issue here is politics. The U.S. nationals want the name America/American for their exclusive use. Don't forget, they are the center of the world. And the rest of us may technically be Americans, but they are "Real" Americans. Cause we all know that if they say the sky is yellow, it is. It they say this or that is theirs, it is. We should appreciate, and be so lucky, that they let us live in rest of the continent of America. You know, their native land. I'm sorry, The name America/American is theirs.
