[UNPOPULAR OPINION] Why do Asian artists always have to prove themselves in America and appeal to Americans?

The US market today is full of popular figures and artists that aren’t necessarily famous because of their talent. So why do Asians have to? I just hate it how MOST  people from the west can’t look past their culture. Why write off something if it is not American and unfamiliar? It seems like non-American music has to be “validated” by the western world.
