HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3300  

post #49486 of 78724

In spanish is "estadounidenses". In english it should be "united staters". America is a continent first and foremost, divided into South, Central and North America. Yes, I´m aware everyone  knows this, but reading someone saying America is a country just threw me off. I know  since it´s called "United States of America", everyone calls people from there americans, but like previously stated, it´s the name of the continent, so that makes a chilean  an american, a puerto rican  an american, a canadian  an american, a guy born in suriname is also american, et al.

One could easily argue that America is not a continent. North America is. South America is. And collectively they are referred to as "The Americas." And when referring to their continent, I've heard people say "North American" and "South American" but never just "American". In Asia, "North American" are people from Canada, the United States, and Mexico. "South American" are people, from, well, South America. Central Americans seem to always get lumped in with the South rather than the North.

I agree to this. I think the term "American" comes from what LionHeart Biker says, the official name of Mexico is "Estados Unidos Mexicanos" so it kinda the same when they call us "Mexicanos". Sometime I've heard people referring to people from the US as "Northamericans" which in that case I consider incorrect cause we, Mexicans, form part of North America.

I personally don't consider and would not refer to myself as an American. I think the term "Latinoamericano" (Latin-American) is what I would use. But personally I don't care and treat everybody with respect.

im with SB on this one. the GT thread is great and all, and "rules" are "rules," but i think the shirt and jacket go well together. in this case, pleasing to the eye trumps "rules" for me.

I and the rest of the world are aware that there are two American continetnts but when most people are referring to Americans (i.e America tourists are slobs, Americans are arrogant, Americans are loud and boisterous, Americans are ignorant) they are referring to people from the United States. Most people outside of the continent do not refer to them as United States of Americans, and most South Americans and Canadians I know refer to their nationality as their country first, especially on the international stage. That is at least from my experience.

That is exactly the point I was trying to make.

Another awesome outfit Sir, but I do not like the shoes one bit. Black lace ups would have been much better in my opinion.

Love the peaked lapel, love the shoes.
 

I'm still going to the office in a thick overcoat, scarf and gloves!
