“assumes the U.S. is the only country inside the continents of North and South America".
As Steve Martin, and now "The Donald" would say, EXCUSE ME!!!!! As far as know, in North America, the residents of the USA are the only ones to identify, label, and call themselves "AMERICANS". And may I say we do it PROUDLY. Im sure our Canadian readers will verify this.
AND as far as I know no citizens of any of the countries Central America call themselves "AMERICANS". Mexicans, Guatemalans, Salvadorians and such yes. But not AMERICANS. The same also goes folks that live in South American countries. Brazilians, Chileans, Columbians and so on. But not AMERICANS. All of these folks seem to be happy to be identified with the country they live in.
This leads me to question the intelligence and reality level of the "Tax Funded" educators who seem to be so 'geographically challenged' (I hope that is the politically correct term for over educated buffoons who have nothing better to do then waste our tax dollars on this rubbish) at UNH.
BUT WAIT!!!!!! THERE IS MORE!!!!!! Because using the term AMERICAN is not all that they find problematic. Oh No.... there is so much more.
To get re-educated about these problematic words, click on the link above for Campus Reform.Other “problematic” words on the taxpayer-funded school’s lengthy list include “mothering,” “fathering,” “healthy,” “homosexual,” “rich,” “poor” and “senior citizen,” notes Campus Reform.
