Yes and as far as Muslims are concerned many Christians are also uneducated, so what?

Only a "merican" would not get who or what such a term is aimed at and then whine about it.
Do you tell black people to 'get over' being called the N word? Do you tell Canadians to 'get over' being called Seal F'ers?
It's a discussion.

I was just wondering if their was a North/South divide to it and when not to use it , it was a word that people from the war years would use to describe a American but did not mean anything bad about it i think .
Some area's of the U.K can be very economical with the amount of letters we use in a word , the fewer the better is the golden rule .
The word I can have 15 different meanings in Scotland all depending on how long and deep you hold on to it
i just thought shortening the A from America was a normal thing thanks for pointing it out so i do not look more foolish than i am already
