      THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm portuguese.. I live on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.. and now I can say "There is still hope for America.". I've been clarifying this in forums and such for yearsssss! The problem seems to be the confusion between CONTINENT and SUB-CONTINENT.

      America being the CONTINENT... devided into three sub-continents. Also... in portuguese we have the word "estado-unidenses" very similar to the spanish version.. that denominates correctly the U.S.Americans (by the way this is the correct form in english too). =)

      So thank you for putting this information out there!
