Actually, I quoted the wrong post - sorry. CitiGirl is the one making a new topic about how Caucasian women don't stand up to the test of time.

Is it possible AB had work done?

By the way, Angela Bassett and Sharon Stone are BOTH beautiful and I respect them as strong women.

No, Black skin tends to not wrinkle as quickly as lighter skin.

No, but your daily reality and that of most black women may be very different as well.

That's just bull****. If I had their permission, I'd show my friends who are actually natural blondes who look amazing at over 40. Still drop-dead, men following around like puppies gorgeous.

They took care of their skin, it's not that hard.

My step-mother is as pale as can be and looks better than Sharon Stone. She is 70. Stayed out of the sun and used good skin products.

Your cherry-picking. She has no make-up on and looks like she was just in the pool.

She is still winning out in her 30s. By the time she is older she has kids and is a soccer mom or has her own career. Ageing is tougher on celebrities who we place on a pedastal and rely on their looks.


A person of color may look better at 40 or 50 but you are still friggin' 40 or 50. Angela Basset is not winning a bikini contest or beauty pagent. Anywhere. Neither is any other 54 year old.

No. My experience is not unusual. Some Black women are open to dating/relationships with non-Black men and others are not. Being from the West Coast I know MANY Black women who have non-Black husbands/fiancés/boyfriends.
