long before the politically correct speak of referring to everything in the Western Hemisphere as "American" became common.

However, someone from say Colombia might say they are "American," but are actually referencing the fact they are from the continent of South America
A large portion of my father's side of the family lives in Brazil, and I lived there as a child, and have visited other nations on the continent. For someone from South America to self identify as a "American" is almost unknown.
