Americans

As an outsider, i’m a little confused about something…why is it that U.S. citizens are called Americans and the other American countries’ citizens are just called other names like ‘Canadians’, ‘Mexican’, or ‘South American’???

Why aren’t they all called Americans since they are all living on the same bloody continent? The comic strip below will help to better illustrate my confusion.
