I don't know how many blacks women I've complimented by guessing their age incorrectly because i thought they were younger.Black women who are normal (not Hollywood-cosmetically engineered)look like 30 when they are 60! I am always off 10-15 years! I have two kids ages 20 and 15 and I am 44, but I looked like I am 23 (based on what I've been told). My age is ONLY rudely questioned by white women. White women ALWAYS assume that was a "teenaged father" until I tell them my age and have subsequently show them my driver's license! Then they get the worst attitude because I look youthful. I tell them that I look youthful because I have melanin, which is true! I love my having dark skin!

They have melanin too you idiot.

Big deal, when I get older, I will not age a bit which will disprove yet another of the balck supremacist generalizations about us because I will always be the exception.

Black folk usually age very well, this is true - but the majority of them (i have seen) are not very good looking so it's sort of a double negative here.

Sister don't ever let anyone tell you aren't blessed to be a woman of color.

Only a 50 yr old black woman can look like this.

Whitey is a genetic defect. Whitey hates the sun and the sun hates whitey. They need to go hide in the shadows where the whiney little pink pig devils belong!

I'm gonna have to agree. Look at Pam Greer and Jane Kennedy. I think a lot of white women get out in the sun too much and get all wrinkled up.

Or maybe you should just kill yourself because you are of no use to the human race at all.

She's gorgeous! If I could look as good as her at age 50, I'll be a happy sista.

I have to agree on the aging issue with blacks, I'm half black, in my 30's and look in my early 20's. I also notice that Latinas age slower than whites too, my mother is in her 60's and looks like she is in her late 40's or early 50's.

Alot of white people just don't age very well, take the Rolling Stones for example, they look like crypt keepers.

Blacks can't absorb sun and get certain vitamins properly. By the time the sun gets so bad that light skin people will have constant skin cancer, as some on here so gleefully anticipate, the earth will be so screwed up it will be the end for all of us.

Black women use a lot of shea butter to cover up the ashiness on their asses. Hotep, the great Black Egyptian doctor who built the pyramids and performed brain surgery on Africans, invented shea butter and gave it magical properties that make 90-year-old black women's asses look like they're only 20-year-old asses.
*Note: confirm yearly shipment of shea butter while it's still swimsuit season*

Thanks for reminding me! LOL

Serioulsy, you know it has more to do that just using the shea butter. Our skin tends to be more oily that other races, which is why we don't (in general, of course) get wrinkles as quickly as other races.
