Thats is strange

Your sample size is too small, but it is true that dark skinned individuals are more likely to have genes which preserve their skins' youth into old age. I also suspect that fair skin is more vulnerable to ultra violet damage, for obvious reasons, especially for fair skinned people living in places that are much sunnier than their European homelands.

Both. Namely the fact that certain races are genetically more prone to wrinkles and other forms of aging.

Yes! For instance, those of Klingon heritage are born with ridges/wrinkles, and are pronounced even if the last Klingon ancestor was two generations ago, which really upset B'Elanna Torres in the Star Trek Voyager episode "Lineage," because she detested her ancestry, and didn't want her child to have those ridges.

I myself am pale, but I am going to look young forever and never get wrinkles because I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome which also gives me constant joint pain.
