Added to every nationality possible in an attempt to make everyone politically correct. This is done even if the person's family has lived in America for centuries.
~African-American huh? What part of Africa?

~Irish-American? When did you come over?

There is no way to unify like making tiny differences painfully clear!

Anyone originating from the continents of North and South America. However to aline with previous posts will be condensed to people originating from or adopting citizenship in the United States of America. This definition confines "Americans" to a population of roughly 300 million. Within those 300 million or so citizens may be found genetic components originating from every nation and region currently comprising the international community. Considering the diversity and population of these people their individual qualities are equally diverse. So upon interviewing all 300 million one would find everything from the mentally handicapped to the highly brilliant, amazingly ignorant to the extremely knowledgable, and the morbidly obese to the epitamy of healthy. Obviously any statement attempting to stereotype or critque such a broad and varying group of people would only preval in showing the ignorance of the author.
"Americans are ignorant."..... A phrase uttered by a truly ignorant person born between a different set of imaginary lines.

1. Technically a definition for anyone who is from the American continent.

2. Typically used to refer to North American citizens of the United States of America, and from here on used in this context.

3. The greatest allies England has ever had.

4. Generally hard working, honest, intelligent and likeable
Ignorant twat 1. All Americans are stupid and fat.
Ignorant twat 2. No, Americans from the USA are stupid and fat, the rest are alright.

Intelligent Person. I doubt either of you two simpletons hare ever been to America, let alone the USA and I expect you have never actually spoken to an American. They are our brothers across the ocean and I would die to project them. In a world full of enemies it is time to recognise your greatest friends.

Ignorant twat 1. What? (accompanied by a puzzled look)
Ignorant twat 2. He's a Yank lover.
Intelligent Person. You two have annoyed be sufficiently that I'm going to beat the fuck out of your inward looking and racist faces.

Ignorant twats run off to watch the latest American film.

There are two types, stereotypical and the ones that don't show up in media
STEREOTYPICAL: Overweight men who watch football and play football all day; Anorexic girls who just want to party and be like their idol, Pairs Hilton. Also people who over spend like crazy
OTHERS: The kind that actually put thought into what they say, are proud to be American for the opportunities they have here and the history of those opportunities, the kind who work hard for every friggin ass penny they can get, the kind of people that started this country

Yeah, sure we all overspend at least occasionally, and we probably all have fun being lazy at least once in awhile, and yeah we love our cars, but at least 55% of us have a heart
Yeah, I'm proud to be a non-dumbshit American

(synonym: Yankees)

Mostly people who live in the USA are called Americans.
People in other countries like to call them fat and stupid which is the common stereotype. Americans think of themselves as free and rich.
When you think of americans the first thing that comes to mind is big fat people sitting on the terrace of McDonald's stuffing themselves.

Human beings who laugh, cry, create. They are just as capable and have just as much potential and soul as anyone else. They have families, they have lives, they have homes, they have worries, they have emotions. Human beings who are just like anybody else but who are largely discriminated against solely because they are from the United States. Being an American is not easy and it most certainly is not always fun. People who think they are nationalistic don't understand that they need to be patriotic now more than ever, because it's what keeps their spirits up and gives them hope.
"All Americans are stupid, stubborn, obese, arrogant, and think they're awesome because they're from America. Americans are all a bunch of jerks."

"Wow, you sound like a self-centered, ignorant fuck who has no idea what he/she is talking about."

Since I'm American, I'm going to tell you that an American is a person who lives in America. You can't say that 300,000,000 people (and counting) are all fat, ignorant, car-obsessed, self-obsessed slobs. There are some people like that, yes, but those people are usually either given a poorly-rated "reality" show or have the shit kicked out of them.
Me: So which presidential candidate do you think will do the best job?
Some idiot: Well, I'm not registered to vote so I don't really care and I don't know the issues.
Me: Maybe you should go on the "Flavor of Love"!

Me: Hey! Let's ride around town in a shopping cart!
My Friend: Yeah! That sounds fun!
Stereotype: Well, you guys have fun. I'm too fat to fit in a shopping cart and too lazy to push one. I'm going to find a Big Mac and maybe piss off some people on the internet so they'll hate Americans.
Me: ...Dude...
