    @bored-am-i: Why US citizens identify themselves as "American"
    1. The name of the country is United States of America. Logically, citizens of the US can be called "Americans" when referring to their nationality. There is no other country with "America" in it`s name.

    2. If you`re referring to what continent citizens in the continental USA are from, then you would call them North Americans. Few people identify themselves with what continent they are from except Europeans, Asians and Australians; they usually identify themselves by their country first. Therefore, few US Citizens are going to refer to themselves as "North American".
    -I`ll also note that within the US, people often identify themselves according to their state more so than "American" (ie. a person from Texas is a Texan).

    3. The term "American" does not have one exclusive definition. It can refer to both the people in the USA and to peopl

    (continued):

    people in the USA and to people from the American continents. Context will clarify which. Neither is inaccurate or a slight to the other.

    4. The terms "Americans" or "American colonists" were used by the British way back when the USA was only a colony of Britain. After the USA was formed, people living in this new country continued to be referred to as Americans. So American people did not choose to call themselves that. If anyone presumed that people in the territory of what is now the USA were the only "Americans," then it was the British. The term is not exclusively used by US citizens either. Many other countries refer to US Citizens as "Americans" also.

    5. What other alternative is there, that both evokes the culture of the people in the USA and rolls easily off the tongue? Yankee? Not to mention, the term "American" has a long history in being associated with US citizens and their culture,

    and to ignore that is arrogant. Basically, you`d be asking a whole nation to re-write its identity.

    Sure. I just made a point of the poor language. And I do understand the basic concept of context.

    This sculpture (called "L.O.V.E") was reviewed in Reuters last week - it is a mockery of a Nazi gesture and is part of Cattelan`s "Against Ideology" series - he stated it most *definitely* was not a statement against the financial world.

    Personally, I liked "The Ninth Hour" - a sculpture he did of Pope John Paul being hit by a meteorite...

    "Few people identify themselves with what continent they are from except Europeans, Asians and Australians; they usually identify themselves by their country first."

    How do you know we Australians are identifying ourselves with our continet? We could be identifying with our country, or our continent, and you would never know! Muahahahaha!

    Also, "few people": Asians, Euopeans and Australians, I`d say that constitutes more than a few people.

    Not that I care one way or another, just thought I`d point that out.
