You’ll also get the odd comment from racists who just want to tell you how much they don’t like your skin.

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.

[sic] Obviously you don’t have the same level of education.

And not wanting to date you doesn’t make me racist. “In other words, you’re not good looking enough for me. Please try to find a guy in your league.” Apart from being astoundingly rude, this man (who deleted his profile after I tweeted a screenshot of his messages) brings up the question of whether racial bias can be classified as racism.

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.
