This is a problem when your talking such things with Americans. Why not use kilogram and metre as the rest of the world use them?

Because back when everyone else was switching to Metric, the American government knew that it's people would not take to change as easily as the rest of the world. Americans are stupid and even it's own people know that. Giving them change after years of learning something would have caused them way to much problems, so instead of forcing it, they just dropped it.1
