I'm a Western European North American living in the North East ... does that make anyone crazy and annoyed?   ::)

As a matter of fact it does! Would you mind moving to the south west?  ;)

And what if you are a white South African?  Would you be a "African South African American" or a "South African American" or an "African American" or just "white"?   And if you are a light-skinned Egyptian are you also "African American"?  And if you were half Chilean half Zulu would you be "South American American African American"?.  And what if your grandparents were from Zaire and moved to central America, are you "Central America African" or perhaps "African Central American"?  And if you are a black American and moved permanently to Africa but retained your American citizenship are you still "African American"?  Or are you "African American African?"

The stuff is just plan stupid and since it also doesn't seem to apply to just "whites" it is inconsistent, confusing, exclusionist, unfair, and perhaps even racist as a bonus.

I'm English/American...but I was born in England... ;)   However I don't refer to myself as such.   I agree that if you were born here (US) legally, you are an 'American'.  If you were born in North or South America does that still make you an 'American'?  We are part of North America so could Canadians refer to themselves as 'American'?

blah blah blah....By right of possession and usage for 240 years we, the USofA, owns the term American. If you are a citizen of one of the 50 states (at least til we kick Hawaii out) you are American. That's it. No exceptions.

Alright alright ... I'm just an American ... with Western European roots ... living in the North East of North America ... but considering moving to the South West cause Conrad asked me to.

Thank you for your consideration. Please let me know when said move is complete so that I can revise my opinion of you.

When a member can't stop for a long enough moment to think and realize that he's nitpicking [...] Nazi Nitpicker decides to declare

Sigh.  I guess resorting to personal attacks will make it all better and set people straight.

I'll tell you what really makes me annoyed....is members using this thread (or any thread for that matter) for personal attacks on other members.

...finding out about this thread after I'd already started a thread about email and those who love the "copy all" feature and use it indiscriminately.

Two for two! I'm batting 1.000!  :D
