Not all pit-goers are american.

Don't take that the wrong way. We don't need another "America vs." arguement.

imo, when someone says "american" it kind of shows self centred-ness and ignorance of the states. technically, mexicans and canadians are also americans. they are call the united states OF america. their country is NOT called america. although, im not really sure what you would call them if not americans. united states-ians? i dunno, but when ever i hear "i'm and american" i think of ignorance mostly.

BTW im not saying all americans are ignorant.

"American" is wrongly used to mean "citizen of the US" when in fact it should refer to anyone living on the American continent.
#37
If you are "American", people usually take "America" to be the united states, even though there's Mexico, Canada and a completely different continent to the south.

So if you are "American", you are usually a person who would be from the united states because that's what everyone means with "American".

To be "American" requires to be born on American soil, or having an American password, each one is legit. A stereotypical American is fat and usually uneducated about anything outside America. Except for Canada and Mexico, they have probably heard nothing about the world outside America. Due to being uneducated, some Americans have never left the united states, due to that, they have never left their homeland. But why would they want to? They, accourding to themselves, are the best in the world.

i love how some foreigners seem to think they know more about a country over the people that actually live there.
