1. An African-American or 'black' person carrying an exceedingly inflated ego and an erroneous sense of superiority to other blacks based on the lack of melanin in their skin. Character traits typically include; extreme vanity, narcissism, physical and emotional frailty, low intelligence; as their sense of entitlement relies on their looks rather than mental or academic rigor, a strong aversion to any strenuous physical labor that may mar or otherwise dirty their meticulously selected outfits (pajamas included), maintains an uncanny need to break into choreographed dance with little or no provocation, hoists Canadian rapper Drake as a champion to Light Skinned Niggas everywhere for his "White Knight" tendencies towards women, etc. While both male and female Light Skinned Niggas carry the aforementioned traits, males are noted for being vastly more conceited, emotionally fragile, self-absorbed and obsessed with image than most women.

2. The antithesis of a "Real Nigga". Is delighted whenever their African-American heritage is not readily identified by other races.

3. Blacks with lighter skin pigmentation. Often classified as"House Niggas" due to their being the historical progeny of white male slave owners who - after having raped black female slaves - were assigned the task of house servants to whites during days of slavery; a fact many Light Skinned Niggas secretly take pride in, and no doubt thank "White Jesus" for every morning and night.

Light Skinned Niggas are the freshest part of the black community. They usually come from a household with a Black parent and a White Parent, giving the offspring the perfect mix of skin tones, thus making them immune to any form of racism. Light Skinned Niggas are usually more accepted in the modern community than the typical, fully cooked black person. They pull more females and dress better with ease. They can have any hairstyle they want to, listen to whatever music they want to and dress however they want to, without being judged as trying to jump races. Everyone is jealous of a Light Skinned Nigga somewhere in their heart. If you're a Light Skinned Nigga, you're probably hella dope.
Notable Light Skinned Niggas include Drake, Lucien Laviscount, J.Cole, Theo Walcott and Lewis Hamilton.
