Look at this thread: https://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=1712895#post1712895 Why do US citizens call themselves americans as if it were the same? I'm american since the day I was born. I like to be american but now it seems I'm not. If you are born in Europe then you are european I think. Then when you correct someone about this they feel you are some kind of fanatic anti-US weirdo. Why criticism about this isn't accepted?. I know you can be used to call US people americans, but it is not right. An effort should be put in changing this. This effort should come from the rest of the americans (which are the majority), it won't come from USA. Am I the only guy in the rest of America that gets pissed by this? People is getting used to it and it's very wrong. I belong to this continent too. It's a subtle way of saying "you don't exist". There should exist a word as Canada has canadian and China has chinese. Vote Chinofan for president.
