A discussion of demonyms, specifically the term "American," and how it might offend various individuals who see themselves as more appropriately defined, especially those in South America. But what could we use instead of American? And why do most people see it to mean "a citizen of the United States"? Should this be its meaning, or should South Americans also use the term to refer to themselves? What does American even mean? And when is it okay to use it?
