This is true.

Just look at the photos of Trayvon. He just got younger and younger every news article.

Oh, Zimmerman will be free per the court of law and there is nothing you can do about it.

Black people come from a higher Rim than the White man, and others. We are the Gods and Goddess of this world!! But doing slavery they took that out of our memories

I rest my case.
LOL are you joking? I love Dolly because she seems like a nice lady but she doesn't look better than Latifah. You are either blind or crazy. Dolly is so full of Botox that if you stood next to her ou 'd probably smell it.

she may had some plastic sugery but look at her poster and her body he back is erect and her waist is so tiny and her legs are so firm she sure looks younger than Queen Latifah even thoug she 28 years old than her.
It's plastic surgery. Not to say she didn't have it to begin with, but without surgery she wouldn't have it now.

I'm white and I look 10 years younger, as almost all the members of my family, and my skin is not that great, thin, a little bit pinkish, not very confident with sunlight too; so i think it doesn't have to do anything with the skin.

In fact a recent study show us that it might be about telomeres and of course your diet, if you do practice sports etc etc

The problem with american people (no offense) but they confuse racial and social denominations. African American for exemple don't have a lot in common with black african (because of all the mixing, especially with white people), in fact almost all americans are mixed up with each others, so it's pretty funny when they came to talk about ethnicity and races.
In fact you guys should be proud not being black or white but being everything at the same time.

Sorry for my english.

Humans are animals, and we adapt to our surroundings. It's as simple as that ! Science doesn't lie people...

Many (NOT all or most) dark-skinned Homo sapiens age slower than light-skinned ones... Why ? Their skins contains far more melanin - the primary determinant of skin color, which also acts as a sunscreen and protects the skin from ultraviolet light.

In other words: Dark-skinned people have more melanin in their skin beacuse they need more protection from the sun. The extra melanin found in darker skin may provide extra protection against wrinkles...

These are facts, not opinions. As said before, we are just animals, but people tend to forget that...

Simply put: Nature has provided caucasians and asians with a higher IQ than africans, and africans with a natural sunscreen ;)

I agree nobody is 100 percent of anything. America is one big pot. And a lot of Caucasians don't now that even if they look white doesn't always guarantee that it's 100 percent. Genetics work in mysterious ways. In africa for example two appearing white people who knew theirselves as white had two biracial looking children. Because it was a generic trait from somewhere in the past.

A darker skin pigment protects a person from the harmful rays of the sun. And being that black people have darker skin they are naturally protected. And staying away from substance abuse and eating the right foods and looking for natural herbs and inner healing as a cure to physical and mental illness as our East Asian fellow men lives by instead of a magic pill which carries sometimes dangerous side effects has also a lot to do with aging an the longevity of a lifespan.

Why do blacks think that just because they were slaves that now they don't have to work? They should just BAN welfare. Lazy good for nothing race.

Ban welfare, are you sure that you want to put all those lazy, drugged out white folks on the street? A desolate trailer park would just be sad.

Sun ages you, stress, and diet. I have seen many black people that look their age or older. I have seeen white people that look their age or younger. Our skin has melanin and the sun ages it slower. If a white person stays out the sun, wears sunscreen and eat right they often look good for their age.

Thats a lie. Ive never seen a white person that looked good for their age. Is their premature balding affected by the sun too? Just stop. whites have horrible inferior genes and they know it.

White men live an average 7 years longer than black men and white women live an average 5 years longer than black women. Guess all that looking good that black folks are doing has a high price in longevity.

I am a 47 year old black woman and people are amazed when I tell them my age. I am told to look no more than 32 years old. I will soon have a birthday and my 12 and 14 year old are so proud of me. My white counterparts look horrible at this age. It has a lot to do with lifestyle and maybe it could just be a curse and reminder of how they treated blacks in the past.
