Can't ignore the fact that some people are "first world" due to no action of their own....how far would you like to go with your flawed rhetoric?

I am so proud for them. And I am also very envious.

African Americans / Africans have a high risk of health problems, and a shorter life span. However, most of them seem to be very tanned, muscular, and otherwise very healthy. It makes sense for them to look young for their age.

I am not black. But despite not being black it seems other people have thought I am much younger than my actual age.

I know a couple of white women who don't seem to be that old. Yet there skin is very wrinkled and the skin seems be be... how do I want to put it, ahhh "detaching from the flesh." Really, like it is falling of the body. I wonder what is the reason for that?

That'd nothing against you, but observing races and how they age i would say that yes we do age pretty well.

Haters will hate though regardless lol!
If you put the average white woman/man against an average black woman/man of comparable age and health it is really not a question who would look more youthful. I don't think a study needs to corroborate that fact. Look to nothing but the beauty and skin-care ads notice they rarely target darker skin women, because they do not need it.

Everyone guesses my age 15 years less than my actual age, and I'm a white British-American (hyphenation used to appease/mock those who hyphenate their loyalties)
