I say Americans should get a new name.. agree?

Ok I know this can't actually happen but still. There are 23 countries in north America but only people from one country can call themselves Americans. Anyone in Asia from any country can say they're Asian. Same for any other continent. Were Americans just lazy?

  • Yes, it's unfair on the Americans of South America. South America is more American than north America anyway. I have been pondering what to call the Statites for a while now as I don't wish to lump in the South Americans.

    • How is it more American?

    • Show All
    • Neither. That's not what I said. I meant people in the US being called Americans

    • Yes but why do you have issue, because they call themselves Americans instead of what the indigenous people may have called the land, or because they are immigrants and not native to the continent named America?

  • Not to be defiant, but I believe there are actually 23 countries in North America.

    Anyway, about the name: I'm not bothered by being called American, even though it's an obvious misnomer. If people wanted to call Americans something else, though, I'd be cool with that too--I'm not married to it or anything.

    • Didn't I already say that? Ok then

    • Wow, somehow I read your 23 as 48. My bad, man. I've been working for WAY too long tonight. LOL

    • Haha... get some sleep

  • It's technically United States of America obviously, but it's most often shortened for practicality. I think the name makes sense. It's just a name though. When eating a tomato on my salad the other day I remember thinking how if the American government didn't lie (I think it was them) about calling a tomato a vegetable, I bet the idea or norm of putting tomatoes on a salad would have never have happened. Most only associate vegetables on a salad instead of fruit.

    • Yeah but I said the name of the people not the name of the country. That had something to do with taxes right?

    • Show All
    • Yeah to avoid taxes.

    • A tariff I believe.

  • Well, America isn't the only example. Should Germany rename itself, considering that Austria is also German?
