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.

Love us or hate us, think about the huge, positive influence we've had on other countries: DEMOCRACY. Yes, the Greeks may have pioneered the concept, but had it not been for America's successful experimentation with it, you'd still be living under a tyrant.

Also, the highest-rated definitions of this word SICKEN ME. You say we make so many ignorant stereotypes, when you made one yourself right there! Remember, stereotypes hurt everybody.

I DON'T EAT FAST FOOD, AND I DON'T OWN A GUN....yet. Hell, at some point I'm gonna need it! So'll you!
Anyone who disgraces true American culture in front of my face will be slapped.

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.

You go on and on about how Americans are so uneducated and can't do shit except shoot a gun, well, I want you to take a look at the entry you just wrote and kick yourself in the face for every error you've made. You make me sick. Ignorance should hurt. I live in the USA and I'm not a hardcore Christian, I'm agnostic. I don't own a gun. I am against gun violence as a matter of fact. I don't even own an american flag, don't see how I could stick one on my car. I don't go around eating a hamburger for every meal. And you hypocrites who say that the USA is full of close minded bible thumpers I want you to look at your entries. How many of you have actually met an American? ..Or are you just goig on past prejudices made by someone else? And about Bush? Not all of us voted for him. Not all of us wanted him in office. Don't pretend that the vote to get him in there was unanimous because that is far from the truth. Every country has there bible thumping, flag bearing, gun toting, fat son of a bitch. Don't pretend Americans are the only ones.
Americans are people just like everyone else, I half expected to be treated like one.

The term American can be used for anyone in the Americas, however its really just people from the U.S.A. If you bring this argument up to anyone who isn't a American from U.S.A they will think we are ignorant because no one else calls Canadians or Mexicans Americans. Even though our full name is the United States of America, is there any other country with America in its title? Yeah, I didn't think so either.
Italian: I'm European.
Canadian: Then I guess I would be American.
Italian: I thought you said you were from Canada?
