.. Does anyone know if there is one particular culture or race of people
whose hair does not turn white or gray until very late in life?
In Brazil we have a popular saying about Negroes: "Negro quando pinta, tres
vezes trinta" - "When a Negro's hair turns white, three times thirty" -
meaning he/she is ninety years old.
In my opinion, popular sayings usually reflect overall tendencies, so we
could probably say that Negroes tend to turn white at a very late age.
