My thoughts are that while the thought is correct that that we are all in N or S America, and therefore Americans geographically, the name of this country is the United States of America, and therefore calling ourselves Americans is proper. None of the other countries have the name America in their country's name, so calling US citizens "Americans" would still be correct. Just as Chinese, Japanese, Koreans and others are Asians, but none would use just that term to describe their nationality. If I have a vote (wait a minute....I do have a vote.) I'd say that calling US citizens Americans is and will continue to be correct. Jim.

At a minimum, I'm Pentatoxic...but most likely, I'm a Pentaholic. There seems to be no known cure. Pentatonix, winners of The Sing Off, season 3
