Okay this is the real, real deal folks.
Redbone, the correct terminology, is a black person who has red undertones in their hair and skin. Usually light or light caramel but not always. They just have reddish hair and skin.
BUT!!! It's NOW used to describe a particular look that occurs in African Americans. Each culture has their own term for this look. In Cuba its: 'Haba' or 'mulatto'. Usually light light complexion.
However, The term TODAY, is used in Black culture for any light, super high yellow girl/woman, mulatto looking woman who is Black(Not Latina, etc). If she is mixed, but still looks traditionally black and mixed w/white(Not the Asian and Black look)she may still be called redbone, but its used to describe a Black Woman(who can HAVE 2 black parents) who happens to be extremely light.
You can call a guy "redbone" too but its been used so much to describe light skinned women that it wouldn't be used quite right in everyday vernacular, although technically you'd be right.Nowadays it has too many sexual overtones for light light women.
Term is used heavily in the south.
I am considered a "redbone" and I get called this all the time simply because I am a woman, and Black, but lighter than most Black people in America.
A light skinned girl walks by: Hey Red(short for redbone) come here.
She's the redbone standing next to Tameka.

A black person is:
A person who is of African-American descent.
A black person is NOT:
Someone who is lacking in manners, steals things, or is less than intelligent.
Black people do not have black skin. Some do not even have dark skin. As long as a person is of African-American descent (such as half British, half African-American), he or she is black.
I am black, and I do not cheat, steal or use the phrase "What up, dog?" unless I am talking to an actual dog.
Black people are generally nice (at least, the ones I know are).
1.)a smooth brown complexion that is nor light skinned but not exactly medium brown skinned.

|6.||Not lesbian approved|
When a lesbian or bi-girl doesn't like another girl because she's not her type. (keep in mind the other girl might not even go that way, but if this girl is vain, it's the principle)
called n.l.a. for short or l.a. for lesbian approved, which is the opposite.
When someone looked on my Tagged page and wanted to talk to my play sister and not me, I was like WTF? I'm straight, but why doesn't she like me? lol maybe she only likes light skinned girls or something. I guess I'm just not lesbian approved.
