What Else is she hiding ? Does this hurt the production companies in the long run ?
When Holly Hendrix won Best New Starlet there was a lot of talk about her ethnicity. Her agent had been marketing her as a Latina when in reality it turned out she was black. Her family came from a part of the Caribbean, who most residents are of African descent. How would a escort client views a person who has resorted to racial passing react after the fact ? You all decide
But Holly Hendrix aside, because she never tried to really lie about who she was. She also has said many times she doesn’t care what you call her, just as long as you call her. She doesn’t seem to care about ethnicity and that’s a great attitude to take.
But there other black performers out there who are pretending to be Latina who goes out of their way to flat out lie …… but why?
Shy Evans is a great example of a black performer who lies and says she is Peurto Rican.
Take a look at her photo, and see if you can tell the truth.
Is Shay Evans Latina or is she actually black?
It’s hard sometimes to tell the ethnicity of a person by simply looking at them. So this allows Shay Evans to market herself as a Latina, specifically calling herself a Puerto Rican princess, despite the fact that she’s actually black. You can see that on your Twitter profile.
In an interview she did with the adultdvdtalk website, the interviewer asked, “What’s your ethnicity?” and her reply was a blatant lie. “I’m Puerto Rican. My mom was born in Puerto Rico and, other than that, I don’t really know.”
This isn’t true. Shay Evan’s mother, uncle, and grandparents on her mother’s side were all born in California and not Puerto Rico like she claimed in her interview with adultdvdtalk.
Shay Evans is a cute girl, so why lie about her ethnicity? Why not admit that her father is black and that makes her at the very least part black.
A childhood friend of hers said that her mother and uncle Jelani are partially black as well. So not only did she lie about where they were from, but she also tried to cover up that they were actually mixed race.
Her great-grandfather on her mother’s side was also born in California; Sacramento to be exact. That’s a far cry from Puerto Rico, where she claims that side of her family comes from.
This childhood friend of Shay Evans even showed me a photo of her uncle and he does appear to be at least partially black. Because he’s not in the adult industry I’m not going to post his photo here. So while I can’t say from just looking at pics of her family, there is the possibility that her mother’s side of the family is at least possibly black, maybe a mixed race of black, Latina and white.
What about her father Jamal? The one she claimed in the interview she didn’t know about?
She grew up with him and that means she obviously knows he’s black. He too was born in California by the way, not Peurto Rico, he’s 100% black.
Shay Evans claims she didn’t know about her father in the interview but that isn’t true. Her mother and her father are still married.
They’ve lived in the same house since 2006, one where Shay Evans herself once lived. So she can’t very well claim she didn’t know who her father was because her parents are still married to this day.
Photos of him are clear he’s black – a dark-skinned black man. 100% black – not of mixed race.
So why lie about who he is and who she is?
She’s a pretty girl. She shouldn’t be embarrassed about the fact that she’s black of mixed race.
I don’t get why she would lie? Why not be proud of your heritage? Why go as far as to lie about it? That just seems strange to me.
If you have to lie about who you are, what else are you lying about?
We reached out to Shay Evan’s publicist to get a quote, but we never heard back from him, nor could we get a response from Shay Evans herself about why she would lie about her ethnicity.
What I want to know is, why does Shay Evans not want you to know that she’s black?
