Pretty agree with the last sentence:

Respect the language.

 

We learn (or at least me) in school that in

english:

American = A person who live in USA

English = The language, but, also a person who live in England

spanish:

Estadounidense or Norteamericano(this is wrong since Mexico also is North America)

 

IMHO USA haven't a real name as country that's why the rest of the world call them Americans, but this affects the ego of Americans since a part of the population is excessively proud and patriotic and here is when troubles shows up, also know that a part of Americans are disagree with the same country, at the end of everything, USA is a big country multicultural, beauty and as every country with good and bad things.
