this white standard of beauty, and all of the subtle influences and consequences it causes.People like Sarah tell me they’re “so used to guys not messaging" them back because of their skin colour, and other people admit to me they would never fancy someone of a certain race because they’re "only attracted to white people." It has become so normalised that we're no longer questioning it.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.A man messaged her, telling her how attractive he thought her “Latino tan” was.

When she pointed out that she was actually Indian, and naturally brown, he stopped replying immediately.A Chinese friend tells me that she often gets messages from men telling her how much they love that she “looks like a cute Pokemon.” She finds that as offensive as people telling her they don’t want to date her because of her race.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 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.They’re just making judgements based on your looks.” Is that OK?
