A proud descendent of the first group of humans to settle in the Americas. According to recent archaelogical findings, they migrated from Asia via glacier bridges and sea travel more than 12,000 years ago and within a short time, they branched off into thousands of unique cultures. Sadly, the North American natives were nearly exterminated by greedy and gold-thirsty European settlers who tricked them through the use of treaties, butchered entire cultures in the name of God, raped their women, stole their land, and infected them with smallpox, syphillis, and other deadly diseases. Today, what's left of the North American natives are now either drinking themselves to death on the reservations, or getting their sweet revenge by building casinos.
Although the South American natives were luckier than those of the north, they were mostly converted to Catholicism, forced to speak Spanish, and what little earnings they make are sent to the modern Roman capital known as the Vatican.
Today, the descendents of the European settlers add insult to injury by honoring a holiday called Thanksgiving, which basically celebrates how their ancestors ass-raped and culled back the once widespread Native American population.
noun : an American of African and especially of black African descent;more...
A Black American of African ancestry;
an American whose ancestors were born in Africa
adjective :used to describe African-Americans; pertaining to or characteristic of Americans of African ancestry
Usage Note: The Oxford English Dictionary contains evidence of the use of black with reference to African peoples as early as 1400, and certainly the word has been in wide use in racial and ethnic contexts ever since. However, it was not until the late 1960s that black (or Black) gained its present status as a self-chosen ethnonym with strong connotations of racial pride, replacing the then-current Negro among Blacks and non-Blacks alike with remarkable speed. Equally significant is the degree to which Negro became discredited in the process, reflecting the profound changes taking place in the Black community during the tumultuous years of the civil rights and Black Power movements. The recent success of African American offers an interesting contrast in this regard. Though by no means a modern coinage, African American achieved sudden prominence at the end of the 1980s when several Black leaders, including Jesse Jackson, championed it as an alternative ethnonym for Americans of African descent. The appeal of this term is obvious, alluding as it does not to skin color but to an ethnicity constructed of geography, history, and culture, and it won rapid acceptance in the media alongside similar for...
A dialect of English whose pronunciation is frozen along with that of Canadian English. While British English had some drastic sound shifts, American and Canadian English pronunciation had only undergone a few minor vowel changes, as well as the changing of some Ts and Ds to alveolar flaps (butter sounds somewhat like "budder").more...
Most of the different spellings of American English (which, for all of you elitest Britons out there, are listed in the OED) developed in the U.S.'s early years, some of them created by dictionary maker Noah Webster. The differences are comparable to the ones between Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese Portuguese.
Another interesting fact about American and Canadian English is that both dialects still use the -ize spelling for words (organize, organization, etc.), while countries outside North America have almost completely dumped it for the newer -ise spelling. However, the OED and Fowler's Modern English Usage (both of which are decent books of British origin) prefer the -ize spelling. Folks from North America also use the older aluminum

a. An overrated conceptual rock-album by the "punk" band Green Day.
b. 1.) The modern overly-patriotic American. 2.) The modern tasteless mainstream consumer.
a. The new Green Day album "American Idiot" is an overblown album that conveys very few insightful ideas about modern politics and pop culture.
An album by my favourite band green day. Released in 2004.
It is a "rock opera" and tells the story of some young kids in modern america, and says a big fuck you to politians. some fucktards believe this album made green day sellouts, but they are just trying to be cool and thinking they are the true fans because they have nimrod and dookie! well fuck you so do i! And if you arsewipes actually sat your fat asses down and listened to it you would realise it is good, maybe not as good as dookie, but still good. Green day are NOT SELLOUTS. Its not their fault people liked american idiot. They didn't know people would, they have always said they write for themselves not others. And yes, some people have only got american idiot, and you find it extremely funny to call them teenyboppers and shit, but its not their fault they were only like two went dookie was realised, and how were they to known MTV was shit before they actaully watched it. Nothing is going to change by you telling the world you don't like it! And just admit it Billie Joe is hot!
faggot: omg green day sucks,they sold out since american idiot! i love dookie i'm a true fan
me *blows top of gun* nicely done if i do say so myself:)
