Demographic comparisons between England and Wales and America in terms of religiosity and ethnicity. Note that the label 'american' on the US map largely means 'mixed ethnicity' and that the US census was done in 2000 instead of 2011 for England and that mixed, hispanic and asian populations in the US are now much larger. Also don't rely on the colours too much in the English maps as percentage indexes tend to vary, mixed race for example appears dark and very dense but it's because its second-largest index is a very small percentage (1-4%). Take those into account.
According to 2010 and 2011 censuses America's original ethnicity (that is if you consider white europeans as its original ethnicity, which admittedly is debatable) accounts for 65% of its population, compared to Britain's 85% white British, or 91% with non-British Europeans.
White Other (Europeans and people from the Old Commonwealth):
Asian (Everything from the Middle East to South Asia):
According to the British Social Attitudes Survey 51% of the population is non-religious, 43% Christian and 6% of various other faiths, Islam being the biggest minority religion somewhere between 3 and 4%. No map for religions in England but using the white British map appropriately (percentage-wise) for non-religiousness and Christianity and the Asian map for Islam and the rest should give you a good idea of the situation.
Christianity (59.9% to 78.4%)
Unaffiliated, including atheist or agnostic (15.0% to 37.3%)
Judaism (1.2% to 2.2%)
Islam (0.6% )
Buddhism (0.5% to 0.9%)
Other (1.2% to 1.4%)
