The USA is not America #TheUSAisNotAmerica

SeaDragon666 Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
America is a continent, here is a map:

Americas Map by SeaDragon666

Can you see it? can you see how big it is? The USA is a country that is located in America.... but by no means it is America. I know that for some people this is very hard to understand.... :no: low IQ people, with low education levels, cannot get this...

The citizens of the USA call themselves Americans, and since they are people that live in the continent called America.... yes, that is ok.... but Brazilians are also Americans, and Colombians, and Argentinians, Mexicans and Canadians are all Americans.... and pretty much everyone that lives on this continent called America is an American :aww:

Now, the citizens of the USA are well-known as:

Gringo www.urbandictionary.com/define…

United Statians www.urbandictionary.com/define…

Estadounidenses en.wiktionary.org/wiki/estadou…

Americunts www.urbandictionary.com/define…


etc... etc....


Do you get it now?

Please help me spread knowledge around the world and let's talk about this. Use the hashtag #TheUSAisNotAmerica :)

I like to remind people of this occasionally who are around me.

"I'm from America"

"Which one, North, south or central?"

Is this really worth worrying about? What are the dangers of this problem? How could this potentially damage people?

Im just asking questions. Im not an offended Gringo, in fact, im not a Gringo at all, im just curious.

These United States of America are the very core of what America is all about!  From the onset our founding fathers declared us to be ".....the United States of America"....simply put, AMERICANS!

Just because these days we have a bunch of ".....Johnny-Come-Latelies" that wish to identify with our power and success (a.k.a. penis envy), and want to jump on our bandwagon doesn't make them the same Americans as WE are. Los Estados Unidos de Mejico???  I have NEVER  seen the tag word attached to their official country name, nor to that of the proud Canadians.

And you, and your ilk, may mock our name, our success, and our power, but as I have always said,  "You are wearing your envy, jealousy, and fear on your shirtsleeve, and it is not very becoming of a Gentleman!"

People don't envy the USA, on the contrary, many of your actions taint the real Americans. The Real Americans are all the citizens of the Americas, and USA citizens give a whole continent a bad reputation.

This is a citizen of the USA:

What is blatantly obvious to me is that I have made a tactical mistake.  I thought that I was dealing with a much more seasoned and mature debater, and not just a bored juvenile.    I am not even going to respond to the drivel you posted.  Instead I am going to tell you that there are a lot more serious problems between the Americas than if some distraught teen girl in Tierra del Fuego doesn't get called " an American!", and you get butt-hurt about it.

Again, I am more concerned with the children living in the sewers of Bogota, the fast disappearing rain forest of South America, the murder of Guatemalan illegal immigrants along Mexico's southern border, the exploitation of salt and gold mines, and oil fields, the uneven distribution of wealth from NAFTA,  and the tight fist that governments have on the throats of its South American citizens.

If a South American citizen were to be born, grow old, and die and the worst problem they had was that they were never called an American then they would have had a rich and joyous life.  Meanwhile, the planet will keep spinning, and people from countries around the globe shall continue referring to the Yanquis as the Americans,.....and rightfully so.

Troubling no, unless getting annoyed by it counts then yes; I tried assuming they use it as they don't have a "proper name" because look, "Unites States of America", those are three words but not exactly a name less for America, and probably they didn't think it would be much trouble if they used it as name and took it as they did not want to say "United States of America", "United States of America", so "for short" is "America".

But I understand what you mean, I know the feeling.

Technically, 2-3 continents (North America, South America, and possibly Central America as a separate space bridging the two), containing 2-3 cultural regions (N. America, and possibly either C. America and S. America, or "Latin America", the Spanish-speaking majority of the Americas consisting of Mexico and pretty much everything south of it).

"The United States of North America" would have been a little cumbersome as a name. ^^;

Hopefully a free and prosperous "United States of South America"/"South American Union" rises from the ashes of the failures of Communism and theocracy in South America.

In Costa Rica it is also spoken English and is used almost as mother language; and well, you know, as there are descendants of different ancient cultures there are these like nahuátl or quechua (but not common languages in their own countries).

Why do you are so adamant about it? It's not such a big deal, is it? You guys ARE Americans, so they're not really wrong. You're just not the only ones. And everybody knows it, it's not like people in the USA claim to be the only Americans worth being called that.

Our neighbour country, the Netherlands, is often called "Holland", eventhough Holland is technically just one province of the Netherlands. But still, everybody says it, both us and other people, and the Dutch themselves. They, as a people, are just as often called "Hollanders". Technically that is not correct, except for the people living in that particular province, who are really Hollanders, their region being called Holland.
But the rest of the Netherlands's provinces have other names, and the people there are Dutch but no Hollanders. Still, the whole country is called Holland by almost the whole world, most of the time.
And I never heard any Dutch complain about it.

So, if they don't complaint about  that, which is even less correct than what you're talking about, why should you?
I guess United Statians just isn't as pleasant a feel in the mouth to say? 
And besides, there are other countries also called "United States"... of something: So in order to be completely correct, Americans should call themselves United Statians of America? Or United States of Americans? 
And frankly, "statians" when said, sounds a lot like "stations". So that's confusing.
Really, I wouldn't bother getting upset about it if I were you. The name of your country is just too long to say it all the time. 
Maybe you should call yourselves "USA-ers"? Or Usas? US-ase?

I'm not sure that's why they do it. Probably as I said, because United Stations of America is what we call in Dutch too much of a "mouthfull"
I have a bigger problem when they call their country "God's own country" Roll Eyes Now THAT's arrogance.

Wrong.

That continent is known as the Americas, plural, referring to both North and South America which are separate continents within.

The country is the United States of America. People use America as shorthand for this, which is acceptable given it's use in both continent and country.
