Probablly the most bashed on country in the world.
Things you should know:

1. Yes, we are aware the term "American" can be used for anyone living in North or South America. The term "British" can be used for someone from Scottland, Ireland, or England. What else do you want us to call ourselves, United-Statesians? Besides, I don't see you calling people from Brazil or Argentina or Cuba American anyways. Why should we?

2. Yes, we are aware our President shows serious signs of mental retardation. All goverments have their problems.

3. We're not stupid. We don't go around speaking "American", laughing at all other "American" speaking countries thinking they stole the idea from us.

4. We're not all crazy extremists or blind conservatives.

5. Your country probally produces almost as much pollution as ours, and seeing as the US is about 3,718,695 cm2 (9,631,420 km2; gasp! an American knowing about the metric system? unheard of!) large and has 302,431,000 citizens, we're not doing that bad.

6. Celsuis- Farheniet, Meters- feet, Pounds- killograms. Gallons- liters. We use both you know.

7. We don't hate all Canadians, Brits, Cubans, and Japaneese people. We don't think all Muslims are terrorists. No matter what Bush says, we most definitely don't eat "freedom fries". We don't all support Iraq. We don't think Pakistan is in Africa.

8. Just because we can't trace our ancestors in America back for 329 years, it doesn't mean we love our country less.

9. Patrioism is never a bad thing. Even if you lived in the crappiest country in the world, it's still your country.

10. No, we don't think everyone in the world celbrates July Fourth with us.

11. We don't eat McDonald's everyday or drive five cars.

12. Not everyone speaks like their from Texas. There are forty-nine other states you know.

13. We don't think we're better than you.

14. Lastly, half the people that bash us are allies with us. Our country has relations in more than half the world. Most likely, we're best friends.
British: "They're bloody pricks too. Look at Bush."

French: "Look at Iraq. What a dumb mistake."

American: "Dude, we know our president's an ass."

An American is a person from the two continents of America but generally the USA people think theyre more american

A person who writes in on urbandictionary to defend the USA by indirectly using stereotypical insults such as "...i could say all british people have bad teeth and drink tea but i won't" is a great example of there ability to undermine their own point

An american is a person who has no or very little geographical knowledge of the wider planet and has never heard of Wales

An american is a person, say bill gates, who has pre programmed all microsoft computers with the English language and failing miserably as they forget the U in colour and neighbour and flavour

Any person from the USA which you will meet and they will say they never voted for bush, and you say to yourself, well someone did i have never met one!

An american who thinks a pound is a burger and not a currency

An american is a person who thinks bugers are an american food invention

An american can be someone who is still hung up on WW2

An american can be also a person who had real strong feelings about the germans even though they were never bombed

North Americans: Canada,the USA, Mexico, and all the little contries consisting of central america

South Americans: People who live in the continent of south america

When People think of America, they just think of the united states, but really America is just the huge continent. The huge continent is called " The America's" and 953,565,000 live here. About 300,000,000 ppl live in the usa

America is a great place, The majority of us are educated, and are a normal weight.
ignorant person: I hate Americans because they are all gross and dumb

Smart American: You do realize that its not just the united states right? And have you met every one from the America's? No you havent... so shut your dumb ignorant mouth because listening to you is killing my brain cells.

Any person from the Americas but usually means someone from the U.S.
Contrary to the popular opinion of other countries (France,England, ect.) we are not all fat, stupid, arrogant, and violent. We still have the leading education system in the world, we are well aware that 1/3 of the world hates us and are not war mongers. If people want to criticize us for stereo typing they should at least avoid using stereo types in their argument. True we do have a obesity problem because of a high fat diet with little exercise to compensate. This is mostly because are nation is spread out across a vast distance and drive everywhere because of that.We are not violent rednecks our country has only fought wars when we believed necessary for the security of our citizens. Which if you look at the middle east and Europe where pretty calm. Also most of you owe your freedom to the U.S. for saving you in world war 2. So next time you say Americans are stupid, dum, violent, and arrogant remember we are leading in education, we saved many countries from being taken over by Nazi Germany. Also we are not all monolingual, all states now require 2 years of the same language to graduate and unlike other countries that require you to learn the native language before getting citizen ship the U.S. does not, in fact we don't even have an official language.

P.S. it's not arrogant to defend you country from slander.
Ese americano es muy amable, inteligente y tiene un excelente español.
For those you who aren't Bilingual maybe you should quit mocking the U.S. and learn some Spanish so you can translate that.
