1) A resident of the American continents.
2) Connotation of someone from the United States.

A stereotypical American unlike me, is overweight not very intellectual and hated because of a stuck up attitude.
We do not see the appeal in using words such as: yank, bigot, and football (soccer). A stereotypical American believes that America in everyway is superior to any other country.
1) Someone from Brazil is American.
2) An American is to the world as New Jersey is to America.

For an example of a stereotypical American watch the show Diner's, Drive-In's, & Dives.

No one stereotype can define an entire people, in every country (except Scotland- the lary bastards) there are good, bad, stupid and intelligent. It is believed that the majority of Americans are retarded, fat fuckers with the negotiation skills of a landmine. Now this may be true for 79% of the population, but lots of them are caring, free loving people who want nothing but peace - these are the hippies. Useless layabouts who try to re-invent the corrupt system of the human world into what is essentially the same thing but only ever manage to achieve a severe sense of smugness, and a drug induced state of euphoria which they likely won't remember. Most Americans like to consider themselves international do-gooders and world leaders in ethics with such organisations as the KKK and NAMBLA. In response to the English's comments concerning their language and culture, they refer to themselves as the best parts of the world put together (like a sausage), and insist their variant is the correct, despite it being called ENGLISH. Rather than a sausage, a more accurate representation of the home of the retard with a superiority complex and land of ignorant narcissists, would be the creature of a Mary Shelley novel. I would bet that at least 85% of Americans would have to research that last reference to understand it. :) Ya gotta love 'em!

One who lives in the United States of America, obeying the law, following community standards and ethics, paying taxes, speaking the language, exhibiting national pride, and following the ideals of the founding fathers: self-reliance, ingenuity, duty, responsibility, and RESPECT.
Domingo is an American: he makes an active effort to obey the laws of the land, pays his taxes instead of living on handouts, speaks English, and treats people with respect. He celebrates his Latin culture, but he's proud to be an American, and calls himself an American, not "hispanic-american", "multi-cultural", nor "mexican". Some day, Domingo is going to run for governor of California, and I'll vote for him.

Umbobo is from Nigeria, and although he lives in the United States, he lives under the assumed name "John Bobo", steals money from people, and considers America his personal toilet. He operates with impunity because he knows the law can't catch him, and they will just deport him if they do catch him, and he can just come back and shit on everyone some more. Umbobo is NOT an American, he is a piece of shit.

Jose is an undocumented migrant worker. Jose finds it easier and easier to skirt the law, and eventually outright break the law to suit his needs. Although there is a legal process for living and working in the United States, Jose chooses to do whatever benefits him the most instead. Jose sends his kids to public school and gets free healthcare at the county facility, but does not pay taxes. Jose engages in identityh theft by using someone else's Social Security Number to obtain employment illegally, and in some cases, he uses their personal information to sign up for bank accounts and credit cards. Why not help himself? He feels that since he lives here, he deserves it! 15 of Jose's closest relatives live with him in a 2 bedroom house, parking vehicles on the lawn and trashing out the neighborhood. Jose's kids have been brought up to disregard the law, and are arrested on a regular basis. Since Jose's oldest kids are also illegal, they just get released instead of incarcerated, because the cops don't want to fill out the extra paperwork, and the legal process to incarcerate illegals is too convoluted to follow. Jose knows that this is because his government, the mexican government, is closely involved in forming US policy regarding mexican illegals. Jose's kids are growing up to be competent and dangerous rapists, thieves, and murderers. Jose takes pride in his mexican heritage, and prominently displays a mexican flag in the back window of his truck. Jose feels that it's COMPLETELY UNJUST for him to be expected to put forth an effort or pay for services he receives. Although Jose LIVES in America, he is not an American. Jose is a parasite.

Lesser version of Canadians. Sure, you may be much larger, and produce SOME good shit, but really they are a bunch of belligerent morons. If you are looking for a good example, GEORGE BUSH. Often caught picking on their much more civilized (but also awesome party ANIMALS) neighbors to the north.

The only reason we deal with you guys is you are our number one trade partner, and you'd probably just blow us to bits.

Like I said; morons.

Love,
Canadian

An American is a person from America and for all you haters out there I know America is not the perfect country but YOU KNOW WHAT NEITHER IS YOURS! I realize that many Americans are and some of them are stupid but just to let you know we are taught the metric system, many believe the metric system is better, and we don't have just one culture we have hundreds. Also many people fled from several other countries because of the prejudice and racism. Also I don't know a single inbred person and inbreeding does not just happen in the U.S.A it happens every where. Another thing is that the United States is the heart of western civilization and one of the most developed countries that go to war to help other countries that put US in millions of dollars into debt and we still except many people into our borders. The U.S.A is one of the most diverse countries in the world.

For those of you who don't hate Americans I think that the people who hate Americans should learn from you.
WRONG: All Americans are fat idiots who are inbred and shoot people randomly.

RIGHT: Not all Americans are fat idiots who are inbred and they don't randomly shoot people.

A term used to describe citizens of the country "America" (Shortened from "The United States of America")

On a less objective angle... An American (From the country America. Yes, while it can technically be used to describe those on the continents on the western hemisphere, no one else uses the term, therefore, it is fair to say) is someone who supports their country.

And no, that does not mean agreeing with everything the government says or does (It's doubtable that any average citizen around the world agrees with their government completely) but to call one's self a citizen of a country, commiting acts of treason make such a statement questionable.

While the United States is lenient on letting its people badmouth and wish for their country's loss, demoralizing the troops who are working so hard for their country and to liberate the innocent people of the Middle East, it is hard to call someone an American when that person is embarrassed to even be part of The U.S.

No, being patriotic is not being prejudice (Although, I personally believe that everyone is prejudiced in one way or another, such as 'my mother is better than yours'). By definition, it is the pride in one's country. If you hate your country so much, instead of rant about it, why not do something, or better yet, leave. But I digress.

Sorry to say this, but it's just not good enough to have legal papers to be a citizen of a country. At least have some sense of loyalty, eh? Like, I don't know... not making Iraq another Vietnam where we lose because of loss of support of the people and thousands of civilians died.
"I hate America! I hope we fail miserably!"
"But... you said you're an American."
"I am! I was born here!"
"But you want your country to fail and destroy the livelihoods of you and your countrymen?"
"Yes."
"Um, why?"
"Because George Bush sucks and we deserve it!"
"Then go to Venezuela and support Hugo Chavez and so South America can be united under one dicator..."
