They’re just following suit.” That’s more understandable – after all it’s been going on for centuries.

But there does seem to be a difference between making cultural assumptions, and people claiming they’re just not attracted to certain races, or fetishising them.

It might have been down to a variety of reasons, but experience told her that it’s because he didn’t want to date an Indian girl - or, indeed, any girl who was radically different from himself. A new study by OKCupid suggests that such behaviour is more prevelant than ever.

The website looked at research from five years ago - which showed most people prefer to date within their own race - and compared it to current data. According to OKCupid, Asian and black men receive fewer messages than white men, while black women receive the fewest messages of all users.

Christian Rudder, the site’s co-founder, says: “OKCupid users are certainly no more open-minded than they used to be.

If anything, racial bias has intensified a bit.” A close friend, Sarah, is living proof of this.

No matter how much fashion designers put ethnic models on catwalks, the majority of magazine covers, movies and adverts show white women.

It's why Barnett says that men desire white women, and the OKCupid data reflects that.

It’s similar to how Sarah feels: “I can understand people making cultural assumptions, but in a dating context it seems to be purely objective.

They’re just making judgements based on your looks.” Is that OK?

Barnett isn’t sure – “it’s a tricky one.” Neither is Sarah, or any of my other friends.

She's an attractive, half-Chinese and half-Caucasian 24-year-old woman, who uses OKCupid.

Last week, she received what, to me, is an explicitly racist message.

A man messaged her, telling her how attractive he thought her “Latino tan” was.
