I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say it's because both Africans and Native Americans were also warriors at some point in our history

warriors have a code that transcend language barriers.

Good guy/hero isn't white...
Just kidding.

It's almost like a Rocky movie, except instead of boxing, you got kung fu. You have a dude who has to learn to f*ght against the bad guy. Bad guy is evil and no one can take him down.
Then, there's some teacher who teaches the good guy kung fu to the point where he's ready to take on the good guy. Along the way, he discovers other life lessons. Then, there's the final f*ght. Bad guy loses. Good guy wins, not with peace or some other 'hippie feel good' reason, but k*lling the bad guy with better kung fu... using some 'special' kung fu death move to finish off the bad guy. That's why "The Karate Kid" was good, he finished off Johnny with that special kick.

didnt realize he played the front man of the crazy 88 in KB1 and pai mei in KB2 (the very same villain he defeated!) until years later

back to the topic though... the opportunity to see someone that looks like u to be the protagonist (esp. after watching your own kind on the silver screen either dying early or being nothing but the bad guy's underling for YEARS) was most seriously the biggest get off. then pile on the can't-fail ingredients such as the underdog usurping the established power, coming of age, and pseudo-enlightenment that's real easy to swallow and requires little to no thinking, etc.
