    There are two American continents. North American and South America. Cuba is considered a Caribbean country and part of the American continents. It's all convoluted. People of the USA are called Americans, and most others refer to their country of origin for distinction.

    America is a continent. The united states of america is a country. No cubans are not americans, that is why they are called cubans.

    yes they are!!! there is North America and South America, and they are two continents.. and in a manner of speaking, yes everyone that lives one either one, are indeed American... but they are all seperated into countries, so they go by that, since both AMericas are so big... so people who live in the United States of America take the last word of their countries name, and call themselves American...
