To the dickheads who wrote def. 6 and 7: Get hit by a train, you bigoted, stereotypical assholes. Not every one of our 300 million citizens are like that, and you've probably never been to here, so fuck off, you stupid faggots. That being said, an american is generally referred to someone being from the US. We have qualities that are BOTH good and bad, just like people from EVERY nation in the world. Remember that, dickheads who keep making generalizations about our country.
Americans have both good and bad qualities, and not every one of us fits the stereotype non-americans have of us.
