Hello, not sure if this is the correct place to post this but it's been on my mind.
The U.S. and Canada are both in North America so are we not all American? Why when a reference to an American is made, it seems to designate a U.S. citizen?
It may be a stupid question but I never understood why Canada citizens being in North America we have a proper designate as a Canadian, so U.S. citizens didn't know what to call them selves? so they just go by Americans but to me, doesn't seem to be a proper designation because we are both in America.
Can someone clarify this for me the labeled designations for these two countries citizens, I probably just need a history lesson here Thank you
