A Red Bone is a Black person that has Red undertones. Contrary too popular belief that it's a light skin person. A Red Bone can be light skin or darkskin. Matter of fact most people that claim they're a Red Bone are actually just lightskin----which is a Yellow Bone.

A Red Bone is a light skinned black female. They are usually just a little bit darker than Yellow Bones( which are the lightest of black females and usually mixed with white, something silimar, or they are extra light due to having mixed race in their family tree) . No it has nuthin to do with being thick( as seen in some definitions) but is often used along with the word thick if a guy/person is discribing that body type as well
In Louisiana I hear they got a whole hella lot of Red Bones and Yellow Bones around there because there be alot of Creoles down there.

After extensive research I found that the term red bone refers to people who are tri- racial, and who have ancestry that is white, black, and native- american.
This mix usually results in people with brown skin with reddish undertones.
Ignorant person: That girl is a red bone.
Educated person: No, she is not she is mixed with only white and black and is too fair skinned.
