Asian female/male pop stars don't exist in the West because they haven't broken through the market at all.

Stated through the perspective of an Asian kpop star who has been working up her American debut for years, is well known in the fashion industry, under the management of Scooter (who handles Justin Bieber, etc.), has the music industry backing her such as the likes of Rihanna: 

CL on the Perception of Asian Stars in America: "I don't think about my skin. When I'm creating I don't think about the fact that I'm Asian… I think they have a certain way they look at an Asian girl. That was the struggle for me, for the last two years… I'm not a thing, I'm not a doll."

Why do you categorize "Latino" or "Hispanic" as a race? I am just as much of a white person as any white US citizen, and people over here are as much of a black person as any black US citizen

In the US, asking if you are Latino or Hispanic is often seperate question in census forms I think it's marked as ethnicity I can't remember :shrug: since most Hispanic/Latinos in the US come from mixed of Indigenous and Caucasian Europeans

I get it as a ethnicity, but the op is mixing it while talking about race, and I see lots of people do it :oprah:
