Did they really release it or did the student who attended the meeting take the draft and put it online? It doesn’t even look like a finished product. It’s sloppy.

It's been a common practice to call the U.S. America and anyone with half a brain (except liberals) know this. Mexicans, Guatamalans, Hondurans, etc. do not refer to themselves as Americans (the continent in this case) they refer to themselves by the country they hold citizenship in. Just more PC liberal brainwashing by our schools and colleges.

The right is easily fooled.
I agree, this is actually nothing to get all excited about. Nobody in this country is losing any sleep over what's going on at a university in Colorado, if they even heard of this. It's like the poster wants this to be something to be outrage about, when it's really no big deal to people who have much bigger things to worry about.

seems like they must have released it, given that it has been up on the official student paper website for months. if it's a draft it makes no sense that it's still up.

This is actually NOT a joke. Keep paying that exorbitant tuition! The article with all of these "banned" words is linked below:

When you spend time in Mexico you quickly learn that native the people will take offense when a person from the United States speaks as if the other countries on the American continent don't count as part of the Americas. They are correct in feeling that way and ever since it was explained to me I am conscious of how I refer to myself in relationship to my country of origin

The insanity continues.... the people perpetuating this at the university level are loonies. Berkeley of course and now here. Now they’re telling us what words to use. We now can’t say America in our own country! I wouldn’t want any of these morons teaching my kids anything.

That's why the word "americano" in Spanish can refer to anything on the American continent.[ Yet, when we talk about "Americans" in the United States, we're usually just referring to people from the United States. This erases other cultures and depicts the United States as the dominant American country.

And every Central and South American Country has a specific proper noun denoting nationality, as do Mexico and Canada: Hondurans, Nicaraguans, Guatemalans, Peruvians, Columbians, Brazilians...Mexicans, Canadians. Perhaps you've heard of them.

Citizens of the United States of America are...Americans.

Deal with it.
