No, no, for those people who are trying to impose what they think we should call ourselves, for this one, you were right the first time as it was apparently taken at a Canadian WalMart.

So dude doesn't want to shave, AND he's wearing a Canadian Tuxedo--I definitely see a lot of stranger things worn in confidence on the streets of Europe.

As the other thread was locked down, I'm going to piggy back here, as this issue seems not to want to go away.

I was curious, as there seemed to some that were (are) convinced that the term "American" was solely used to describe someone who comes only from the US, to ask what you/they would call the group of countries, collectively, between Columbia in the south and Mexico in the north?

This is an ongoing debate. But generally people from the US are called Americans, people from other countries in North or South American are generally referred to by their country.

This is not generally a naming system based on logical reasoning and root word definitions. It comes down to a collection of letters which form a word which is used to refer to a group of people.

If you want to try and speak more accurately, and use the terms as their root-uses seem to describe, you will only cause confusion in communications.

I turn your query back upon you good sir!

Have you EVER met someone who was from either North or South America who, when you asked what nationality they are, replied "America" and the person in question was NOT from the US?

I'm not saying they can't... I'm saying that in the main, they don't.

People from Canada call themselves Canadian. People from Mexico call themselves Mexican (well, more like "Mejicano / Mejicana).

This isn't a question of what we call them or what you'd call them but rather, what we each call ourselves.


Behaving in a purposefully obtuse manner is irritating and I find the folks continuing this "discussion" as if trying to tell me what I can call myself to be offensive.
