Hello US citizens, I am a Canadian I am also an American a ( North American ). ,anyone from the tip of Chile to the top of Canada and everywhere in between are American. It annoys me that people don't understand what the term American means. People of the USA seem to have claimed the title Americans to describe themselves as a Country and not a continent as the term is really meant to be. You are Proud to be North American as am I
It has gotten to the point where even at the border they have asked in the past if you are an American citizen. (years ago). I think its been clarified since then.
How many people know Russians are also Asians? People use the term Asian to describe people of cultural appearance ( Chinese, Japanese, Korean etc ). But not to describe a Russian.
I don't mean this to be insulting at all, its just frustrating to me that the term Americans is so misused in the USA to the point where other people of the Continent of North and South America are not considered Americans in the USA. Yes people of other Countries are also Americans.
The flag of the USA is an American flag and the flags of Canada, Mexico etc are also American flags
Sorry in advance to those who are offended by me clarifying that.
