American Are You ?, So are all of the other citizens of N & S america

"America” is: “A country that claims the name of an entire continent to itself alone for no compelling reason.”

But then I have always felt that the term American was overly arrogant when one that hails from the USA claims the term American as their own.

America is named after Amerigo Vespucci, the Italian explorer in a time when little was known about the continental land mass,,,, go almost anywhere in the world and say "America" and the USA comes to mind immediately,,, if I lived in California I'd feel so much discomfort and shame I would move to Texas or Bum Phuck Egypt to make my self feel better.
