    Asia is not a one size fits all category and neither is the U.S.  There are people from all over in each and what they believe and are comprised of really depends on which country, district or neighborhood we are talking about.

    You can't, just look at the indigenous populations of, Patagonia, and compare with those all through South America and Central America and on through the Three continental North American countries, then add all the interlopers to the indigenous population, it is too disparate a population span.  The same can be said for Asia, running all the way from the Bosphorus to Japan via the Indian sub-continent.

    In between Asian and American there are lot of similarity and dissimilarity. There is similarity in the progress of life to get education and knowledge. The dissimilarity lays in the complexion, in the body structure, food, culture, and in the tone of English speaking. In general Asians believe in negotiated marriage while Americans mostly believe in the marriage of direct contact.

    Asians encourage their kids to learn. Americans blame the teachers if the kids don't learn.

    Asians do whatever it takes to succeed. Americans expect government to take care of them.

    Asians are usually smarter than Caucasians.

    Asians have nice silky dark hair. Americans have every kind of hair.

    Asians have almond eyes. Caucasians have round eyes.

    Asians have dark eyes.  Caucasians have lighter eyes, which are easier to read.

    Asians have to be smarter because it's much more difficult to learn all of the characters than to read English, a phonetic language.

    Asians are better at working as a team, like in a factory.  Americans are better at inventing because we prize individual liberty and don't see ourselves as "born into" any lifestyle.

    Asians respect elders.  Americans beat up elders.

    Asians respect teachers.  Americans threaten teachers.

    Asians have lived with caste-type systems.  Americans have different classes of people but Americans stubbornly believe that we are all equal...maybe we should believe that equality is in the eyes of god and in the Constitution...but we are not all equal.

    Asians make TVs.  Americans watch TVs.

    Asians respect the family.  Americans seldom marry anymore.

    Asians have a top-down society. Americans are fighting against having a top-down society.

    Asians try to better themselves through education.  Americans expect instant fame and wealth through sports, music, art, reality tv.

    Asians look more homogenous.  Americans are a mixed race and mixed ethnicity.

    Asians are more likely to live with their parents longer.  Americans are more likely to have children and expect Uncle Sam to give them money for that.

    Americans are more tolerant of differences.  Asians are more likely to be leery of strangers.

    *PS, you make it difficult when you say "Asians" and "Americans" because many Asians are Americans.  When I was growing up, my best friend was Cathy Chang and I didn't realize she was Asian because she was American and all Americans came from somewhere else.

    Sorry, but what kind of a question is this? No offense, but you can buy books about the culture of both countries.
