  • because they are called a mexican
    we chould be called a United States-en
    but that just sounds fuuny
    so i guess we are stuck with american

    why are all people with dark skins called African American
    what if their ancestors are not from Africa
    so what if they are 'white' and from south africa, but move to united states, are they african american

    my granchildren will not have these names i think, i hope , i pray

    all very silly

    should we not be asking their names and calling them, fred,,,,stan...or betty

  • Our country's proper name is United States of America. That's why we call ourselves Americans. :) As for the Untied States of America being a continent no, it is not a continent. It is a country within in the North American Continent. When North and South America was added to the map by ancient map markers they called it "America" after Amerigo Vespucci.
