If she says she’s spanish THEN SHE’S SPANISH!! why don’t you people understand that?? If she’s telling you she’s not black then she’s not!

marjanel November 7, 2015 at 8:56 am

She obviously is obviously black descent.In any Latín American country she would be consider black or mulata.Nobody would call her Spanish.

blah November 14, 2012 at 3:34 pm

I can swear on my MOTHER that she looks just like my aunt body wise and everything and her mother looks A LOT like my mother and we’re African American. She’s Afro-Latin and brainwashed to think something is wrong with being black, clearly.

Daisuke November 7, 2012 at 5:37 pm

what she says is what she is, I’m 31/32 Black, and 1/32 Norwegian and was born in Iceland, and I’m Icelandic of Norwegian background first!! then i say i’m mix with some black

Puerto ricans can have white and black mixture but I think Evelyn has black in her

hii August 11, 2012 at 7:59 pm

for every single person who says they’re puerto rican, dominican, cuban etc and say they have no ancestory to blacks and indian in their family and their birthplace are ignorant idiots. if ur born ,raised or ur family is from PR, DR, cuba ur mix with black, white and indian and some are more black than others down there. if you don’t think ur black and yet ur darker than flavor flave then ur super ignorant to the truth. people like to bring up Taínos but Taínos are indians or native indians that migrated to the caribbean islands. if you don’t know the history of ur own people like to parade around as if you do, stop it and learn ur own history. this woman is clearly black, who in their right mind would think she’s not black? she would think so and i know others would bc its the culture they have that made them think being black was wrong and would make them below human but she is black. she may not say it but people still say she’s black or black hispanic.

EVERY BLACK PERSO WHO WATCHES BB WIVES CAN TELL SHE PUERTO-RICAN I’VE NEVER HEARD A BLACK PERSON SAYS EVELYN HAS A MIXTURE OF BLACK!!!

julieanna July 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Here we go again. I have seen Evelyn on many interviews. This woman has NEVER said she was Black and does not see herself as a Black woman. She is Puerto Rican and has stated that many many many times!! WTH is wrong with people. LOL

marjanel November 7, 2015 at 8:59 am

And do you know that many Puerto Ricans consider themselves black? Obviously that She is puertorican but that doesn’t say anything of her race.It is like saying that Will Smith is not black because he said that he is Americans.Nationality is not the same than race.

cindy1 May 24, 2012 at 1:25 am

PUERTO RICANS AND DOMINICANS ARE LATINOS! JUST CUZ THEY BLACK DONSET MAKES THEM ONE OF Y’ALL. THEY ARE LATINOS. ESPECIALLY THE ONES BORN AND RAISED THERE! U ppl don’t know shit

marjanel November 7, 2015 at 9:02 am

Latino is not a race.I am from Latín América,people her don’t call themselves latinos or used that word that much.PR and Dominicans are latino but that doesn’t say anything about their race.Puerto Ricans can be blak,white,mestizo,mulato,zambo,triracial,asían or whatever.

cindy1 May 24, 2012 at 1:22 am

@sanity…..U REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HECK YOU TALKIN ABOUT. YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW THE BROAD TO ASSUME SHE IS MIXTURE AFRICAN, NATIVE, EUROPEAN. SHE’S PLAIN PUERTO RICAN. AND FYI PUERTO RICANS ARE NOT I REPEAT ARE NOT MIXED WITH WHAT U DESCRIBED! THEY ARE LATINOS. SO DON’T GO WITH THAT BULL CUZ U DON’T KNOW CRAP! HAVE A NICE DAY

sanity April 9, 2012 at 3:20 pm

Do not let the processed blonde hair fool you!Evelyn is clearly mixed with eurpean,african,and possibly native decent, like manyyyy of the people who are from PR

DA X mann April 9, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Their are white puerto ricans too. They just don’t migrate to the United States like the black one’s do.

Dropit! March 17, 2012 at 8:20 pm

As per wikipedia Puerto Ricans are 74% spanish 18% Taino and 9% black

BIG PAC March 17, 2012 at 8:59 pm

does not what I see in new york. puerto ricans and dominicans are black that speak spanish that’s it.
just like haitians speak french. but there not french.

marjanel November 7, 2015 at 9:05 am

puerto Ricans in New york don’t represent all Puerto Ricans.Also may be you have seen many white Puerto Ricans but you din’t notice that they are Puerto Ricans beacause you thought that they were white americans

BUU February 13, 2012 at 3:16 am

At Kate I agree with you but even the white Puerto Rican don’t want to admit they are white and just say they Puerto Rican acting like they 100 percent Taino. It like come on don’t deny what you really are and your orginal roots. My family are Italian and Espana who migrate to Puerto Rico and then to America some of them say they Puerto Rican and I say they retarded because they not Taino at all they white with big ass noses.

ha April 9, 2012 at 7:13 pm

obviously they’re not white. that doesn’t mean they don’t have white ancestors. i don’t understand why they would call themselves white….

bvision April 9, 2012 at 8:44 pm

puerto ricans is mixed like the rest of latinos

DA X mann April 9, 2012 at 10:06 pm

Not all of them. Some are pure europeans.

MinaB January 5, 2014 at 9:02 pm

Those so called “pure” Europeans are also the minority on the island. The majority are biracial or multiracial. This page is a joke.

marjanel November 7, 2015 at 9:09 am

Many Puerto Ricans In Puerto Rico call themselves white. Only in Usa because American influence Puerto Ricans and many latín Americans think that latino is a race or that they can’t be white.watch a puerto rica census, there arw not only whites that consider themselves but many mixed people,according to Puerto Ricans in Census,they are mostly white.

BUU February 13, 2012 at 3:12 am

I personally feel that a pure puerto rican meaning being 100 percent taino but there nomore of them. Some have lil in them and some don’t. I think when people say Puerto Rican is basically a mixs like you saying you American. I took History of Puerto Rico in college and they broke it down. To me she looks mixs but def has black in her. Just saying.

JRivera August 31, 2011 at 9:26 pm

She is definitely Puerto Rican.
She is not half black and half puerto rican.
You may think she is half black because she dates a lot of black men and hangs out with mostly black women.
Also, her daughter Shaniece is half black because her father is black.

Lala March 4, 2012 at 12:52 pm

She’s Puerto Rican black. WTF. Puerto Rican is not a RACE!

fuzzybear44 August 8, 2012 at 6:05 am

Well I don’t know how much of what is in her,but imo it’s obvious the African bloodline is there.Also going by Latina.com 25 most beautiful Afro-latinas in Hollywood,she’s on the list.So it seems they see her african bloodline also.Now if she took offense to being called that,don’t you think she would of had them retract it(assuming she knew about it).The list came out months ago,I’m sure someone would have told her by now.

lula August 26, 2011 at 10:46 pm

she is afro hispanic. hispanic is not a race

Anselmo Valle July 14, 2011 at 7:37 pm

Question to Kate: What is “Jennifer Lopez puerto rican”? I am puerto rican and have never met a pure puerto rican. Every puerto rican I know is mixed. Must of us are mixed with euoropean (Spain) and african (slaves brought by the spanish). I myself have Spanish, French, African, Arab, and Taino. The native puertoricans were Taino indians. To this date I have not met a pure taino, have you? I am sure that Jennifer Lopez is just as mixed as the rest of us.

Amber Berg July 15, 2011 at 4:39 am

I agree Evelyn is Puerto Rican, both her parents are puerto rican, and yes she is obviously mixed with something, but she is not half African American and puerto rican. Both of her parents just look very mixed like a lot of other puerto ricans

rafael July 15, 2011 at 8:06 pm

anselmo,no the tainos were not native puerto ricans,because when they were there ,pr didnt exsist,only after spain came and SETTLED did it become puerto rico,the tainos were either murdered or died of disease within 10 years of spain getting there.spain gave pr its language,culture and traditions.ALL our grandparents are spaniards not taino.it is spain that named the island,not tainos.it is a little insulting when so called puerto ricans come on here,state THEIR OPINION,and mistake it as fact.

Amber Berg July 15, 2011 at 8:40 pm

So are you trying to say that no puerto ricans have taino blood? Because I can see it throughout there face. And if it aint Taino blood then it is african blood, or where do you think puerto ricans get there looks from? It aint just from the spanairds

rafael July 15, 2011 at 8:47 pm

amber,its more likely that its african rather than taino

kate July 14, 2011 at 4:10 pm

she is black and rican you can tell shes
not jennifer lopez puerto rican she has african blood in her most spanish dont know
or want to know or admit
but african slaves
were and are still in
latin america.

Amber Berg July 11, 2011 at 8:00 pm

Both her parents are puerto rican they were on the show, although you can tell she has some African blood in her

kate June 5, 2011 at 2:55 pm

she is half black and puerto rican

ethnic June 5, 2011 at 7:53 pm

Id like to see some proof of this.

mari May 31, 2011 at 3:09 pm
