Many people often confuse culture with race, and they're definitely not the same thing! When it comes to race, it is usually broken down to white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander or Native America. From there is where the cultural world opens up!

Culture is often more complex than you'd think, and it essentially comes from the personality of the country. Things that play a role in the culture are its language, values, and social norms. While this sounds vague, you could probably name the culture you're living within.

American culture is often associated with its outgoing and opinionated nature. The culture is also defined by the desire for newness, diversity and its role as the land of opportunities.

Across the world in Japan, their culture is very different. While they are very outgoing in forms of technology, their culture is extremely traditional and modest. While speaking out against a terrible boss might be considered normal in the United States, this type of behavior would be shamed in Japan.
