A Native American or Aboriginal person who, although looks Native on the outside, is considered a white person on the inside. Red on the outside, white on the inside. Can be used in a number of contexts:
1. It is sometimes used to express insecure envy towards anyone in a Native community who attains any measure of success.
2. It sometimes means the person is ashamed of being Native, lacks involvement with the community, or has lost touch with the culture.
3. It is also sometimes used to express contempt towards somebody who is perceived as selling out. e.g. Would help non-Native business screw over Native people if there was enough money involved.
Joe: He doesn't hang out with us anymore. It's like he's ashamed of us now.
Jim: Yeah, he's become a red apple.
