And, no doubt, they are able to quote the precise clause in the constitution that stipulates that?
Once they've pulled it out of their arse, yes.
Still Americans who believe that only the the first ten amendments (Bill of Rights) count.

Because they are racist.

On a related front, here's famously anti-LGBT VP Mike Pence, swearing in an openly LGBT lady on a law book. He must've been screaming internally:

Not so long ago, someone here said they didn't believe people still spoke like that...
That was me. I's a standin', cotton pickin' corrected. Y'all.
For me, "y'all" was one of the hardest things to get used to when I was working in Atlanta... I think its use is confined to the Southern states though.

After ten days in Atlanta, I found myself starting to address men I was talking to as "Sir" without thinking about it.
Try two months! I was even beginning to use " y'all " myself... and I did indeed start addressing women as "Ma'am". I did find whilst I was out there that I preferred the Southern way of speaking to the arrogant bloody New Yorker that ran a bar I frequented there...

Twelve years in the Midwest and I still don't speak much Yank.

I still say "What do you call that thing?" nearly every time I go to the "hardware" store.

I still get a laugh every time I call a flashlight a torch.

I still say "no problem" after someone thanks me instead of "you're welcome".

Boots and bonnets instead of trunks and hoods.

Kitchen roll instead of paper towel. etc..... etc.....

*edit - correction

I did have to alter my "yew" sound to an "oooh" sound because people found that "tyew" weird. :P

It's Mountain "Doo" and not Mountain "Jew". (For Mountain Dew).

Ii's "Noo" York and not New York.

My friend Dewey at work is "Doo-ee" and not "Jewey".

"Toosday" as opposed to "Tuesday".

Few is the same for Brit or Yank.
