And then brazilians sometimes complain why they get treated like idiots.
i call them the united satans
United States of North America
why are people from the uk called BRI'ISH and not united kingdomish?
Why is it Brazilians and not 7-1ese?
it's to make south americans angry as fuck
I laughed because in my Spanish class I learned in Spanish you refer to Americans as "estadounidenses", which if translated directly it would be "united statians" like OP said, but I never really realized how ridiculous it sounds in English.
agreed. USians would be a better term to use for people from USA, since "Americans" can be used for everyone who lives in NA/SA.
I guess I've read that it's because the name of the country is united states of america, so they just shorten the last piece of the country's name. Idk
same reason people from the Mexican United States are called Mexicans and not Mexican United Statians
you go off of the name part of it not the extra stuff
your people have mental problems
It is kinda weird. I’m American but wha about the other 2 North American countries? Iv never heard a Canadian say I’m American.
