What is my Country-nymic?

Okay, so I'm from the United States Of America. More than once now I've been typing a comment about a topic that has to do with Mexico or Canada or somewhere in this hemisphere, and I start to type "American" to describe myself, but then I stop, because we're all Americans over here. I think I remember that USian fell out of favor a while back. So... what do I call myself? Most recently I used the awkward term "US person". Is there any descriptor for someone who is from the USA that doesn't has cultural superiority assumptions ("I'm American, none of the rest of you from the Americas get to say that!") or the negative associations that I remember this site associating with USian? I don't have any answer, but I'm genuinely curious if anyone here has a good word to use. Because I'd use it.

Mike Daisey's truthy issues

How is this deleted post any different from the current, non-deleted post on the subject?

black Americans on MeFi?

No offense or anything, but I am also curious to know how many black Americans are posting to Metafilter. Someone posted this to Metafilter and it looks like it was deleted. I am also curious. raise yr hand in this thread.
