Take it from a real "Reyd Bone" herself...
A red bone is:

1) Term to describe a light skin black person (whether male or female).

2) Nickname for a light-skin black girl/woman when a guy tries to talk to them.

(*Red bone does not have 2 be thick to be considered a red bone, that waz just a part of Ciara's song "Oh")
1) "U talkin bout dat sexy 'red bone' right there?"

2) "Ay red, lemme holla atcha?" (red- short 4 red bone)
