Lately, I’ve seen a lot of complaints about how “American” is used to describe U.S. citizens neglecting the other “American” countries. I have a solution.
Since we are being politically correctÂ by adding a cultural prefix to American why can’t the rest of us who don’t really care about prefixes be called U.S. American? It’s not any harder to say than African American or Mexican American or Pakistani American or Czechoslovakian American and so on. Or is there something somehow just too patriotic about calling oneself U.S. American? I’m fairly sure patriotism is not politically correct, given all the anti-americans there are who are U.S. citizens.
