Why are Asian fetishes a thing?

I'm Asian American and I always encounter guys who very much fetishize Asians and make it very clear. I personally think there's a difference between having a full on fetish for a race and just preferring a certain look. Maybe I'm wrong but that's just my experience. I just really wonder why fetishes for Asians and racial groups in general is so big. What to people find so captivating about certain groups that it can be considered a fetish? I kinda find it dehumanizing and degrading.
