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?

Technically, Americans are simply people from the Americas- i.e. North America or South America. Very commonly used specifically to people from the USA.

The United States of America is probably one of the most bashed countries, if not the #1 most bashed. Many people say Americans are ignorant, overweight, rude, etc. First off, yes, some are, that's true... but not everyone from there! Most people who comment in this way about Americans have really never even been to the US nor met an American. Or, someone meets an American that is a prick and then goes off and takes it all out on every American. That sure is fair.
Look, an American, he's from the Americas!

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!

A citizen of a country in which "freedom" has been stressed to too much of an extent for far too long.

Yes, the word "American" unfortunately is commonly correctly defined as "an ignorant, bigoted, gluttonous prick".

Those Americans who have exploited the word "freedom" are an embarrassment to say the least. I'm an American and I must say I'm humiliated on a day-to-day basis by my fellow citizens' ignorance, but to those of you who are reading this as a non-American citizen, please know we're not all the same.

Anyone who is well educated in world history, however, surely knows of mistakes made by nations in the past. The United States is still a young nation and therefore still exhibits the ignorance that older countries have already learned from.

When you think of the word "American" try to remember that while most Americans exploit the word "freedom" many of them acknowledge the word "accountability".

Fellow Americans: We can change these problems. Humble Yourselves!
Englishman: "Oh dear. Americans have such awful grammar. And why do they talk so loud?"

American: "What you talkin' 'bout bitch?"

Englishman: "Ugh..."

Fat, selfish, immature people who are extremely dumb at math. They never stop talking about money. They also think their own country is the best in the world, which makes some European and Asian people think Americans are seriously retarded but they don't bother to mention it because it's not worth it.
We are Americans, we love wars! We're the bestest!
