What are americans?

Americans

Americans, or American people, are the citizens of the United States of America. The country is home to people of different national origins. As a result, Americans do not equate their nationality with ethnicity, but with citizenship. With the exception of the Native American population, nearly all Americans or their ancestors immigrated within the past five centuries.

Famous quotes containing the word americans:

    The English are polite by telling lies. The Americans are polite by telling the truth.
    Malcolm Bradbury (b. 1932)

    The Americans have many virtues, but they have not Faith and Hope. I know no two words whose meaning is more lost sight of.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    All this stuff you heard about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of horse dung. Americans, traditionally, love to fight. All real Americans love the sting of battle.... Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn’t give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That’s why Americans have never lost—and will never lose—a war, because the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans.
    Francis Ford Coppola (b. 1939)
