Dude you dont get it? Americans were English ppl who left England for religious freedom and came to america and founded what is today know as the United State (american). They were call Pilgrim people. You're logic is flaw. English is American, American is English. American is a nationality for the people who lives in the United States like what Thai, which is a nationality for people who lives in the realm of thailand. English/British people were the founder of America. Like i said, Tai is lao and lao is tai.
Lao ppl is the ethnicty of the majority of Laos, the Lao ppl migrated from the Region now called Dien Bien Phu, and the upper Red and Black river tributarys, so the ancestors of the Lao live along side the Viet ancestors for over 1500 years at least. being that they have live along side each other for so long, its most likely they may of had some of the same ancient ancestors.
as was stated, Even the founder of modern Thailand, Uthong of Ayutthya claimed he was the same lineage and bloodline of the Lao King who founded Lanxang.
The Tai/Lao migrated south and conquered the Siamese ppl in central Thailand, just as the English who conquered the native americans, the original Siamese who made up the majority of ppl of Ayutthya were Khmer/Mon ppl, the Siamese ancestors are the ppl from India, just as the Khmer and Mon.
Even though the majority of Thai ppl were Khmer/Mon, since the ruling class were Lao/Tai ppl, the general notion was that Thailand is Lao/Tai, even though the great majority of Thais were of Khmer/Mon lineage.
I agree, the General notion is that Americans were English settlers, which shaped and formed what is America Today, being so, Americans are most asociated with the English. All the original settlements in America were English colonies, the language is English, most towns and names of Americans are of English content.
