Its very evident in London actually when black Africans and Black Caribbeans live side by aide you can tell the difference in cultures; Black Caribbeans integrate in UK culture much much more easily and seem less uncomfortable with the general culture than Black Africans. This could be due to the fact that Caribbean culture has that European hint for example, speaking English, using common food ingredients and coming from an essentially very similar government structure.

White Europeans look similar, enough yet a white Ukrainian are very different to a white South African...
Well IDK I can tell a Polish person from a British person to be honest.

Armenian man (on average they're more 'light' featured, similar to Russians, quite to the contrary that they are dark like the Kardashians):

Actually America is very culturally mixed maybe the majority of the population is white but the culture of the USA stems from West Africa, "Hispanic" and various (white) European countries.

Irish and Black Americans are very similar culturally. But this could be because I think much of the black American culture was influenced by Ireland. Or both were historically oppressed by British people
