    Re: Asian giant for HC

    [quote user="AsianGiant"][quote user="bandwgn86"]i've never considered myself"American"maybe its because its been associated withthe US.. just figured you folks needed a to find a cool name.. American sound better than United Stater imo[/quote]

    But isn't that funny? That's like China taking over the "Asian" label and if you are not chinese, you don't say you are asian....

    When you think of the word Patriot, do you think that refers to someone in the USA?
    [/quote]it is a little funny.. but i guess its not just the term "American" "America" has replaced the name United States aswell no?

    American sounds way better than United Stater. seriously.

    China wanting to "own" the term Asian is yet again a representation of the China v Korea v Japan v South Asian Country problem. You know technically those people we call East Indian are actually Asians too.

    Asia's a Continent not neccesarily a single ethnicity or Nation for that matter.

    As for our neighbors North, South, far South and really far south, technically you all are Americans too, BUT your Nations choose to identify themselves by the Nation from which the people live.

    ergo, Brazil and Brazilians, though also Americans...

    [quote user="jmike"][quote user="bandwgn86"][quote user="AsianGiant"][quote user="bandwgn86"]lol... wondering in the series do they discuss the term "American". my question is when did you lads steal it lol..mind youit sounds better than United Staters[/quote]

    Here's a good question for you, and respond fairly....

    1) If you go to foreign countries and you ask them who is an American, will they say it's the United States, Mexico or Canada?

    2) Since you are up in Canada, technically you are American, do you call yourself American?

    3) When you look at Mexico and speak and think about Mexicans, do you think of them as Americans?

    Because technically we are all Americans. But IMO, it is only the United States that reflect who is American. Not to be arrogant and "steal" the name American, it just seems that the global "culture" refers only to the USA as Americans...

    Now why is that?

    Yeah my friend stayed with Fisher for 2 or 3 years [ then left and joined the service] his brother stayed and got his cut. It took them like 20 years to find the mother load of gold. The Mel Fisher musuem in Key West is really cool....check it out if you ever get the chance</P>
