Why are you answering this question?

Inbred DEVIL pigskins always trying to find something out about black people.

Its none of their business.

but some people are light complexion and are not mixed how do you explain that? mixed people use to be just mulattos are biracial are even creole and some brown skinned people are ACTUALLY mixed and aren't even light skinned so it can't be pertaining to skin color if this is the case

A red bone is sum like my self with a light color mixed with a little dark ness but not all that much dark
I think you meant to say "someone", instead of "sum". Also, there should be no space between "dark" and "ness". The correct term is, simply, "darkness".

In case your sttttupiddd assssssssss doesn't realize that you are on the African American forum. This question asked is directed towards black people and pertains to BLACCCCCKKKKKK People. No one gives a damn about what Asian's were called. Red skin and Redbone are two totally different terms KKKlowwwwnnnnn.
You can't tell anybody shyt with your stupid ass. Your skin is the color of petrified shyt, that's what you should be concerned with.
Shut up you salty bitch. The race card is a sign of ignorance

All of u are wrong!!! I promise you i'm correct! A redbone is a light skinned/ caramel African American. A yellow bone is a light skinned mixed looking person. Examples: Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey are yellow bones. Aaliyah and Beyonce are redbones.

Red bone is a light skinned black person. The term is derived from Red Ibo which was used to describe light skinned slaves from the Ibo/Igbo tribe.

There is no such term as yellowbone chicks, they're referred to as high yellow chicks or high toned chicks. Redbone chicks are what the very dark skinned black she apes with bad hair would burn their chillun to be. Tru dat you feral Sambos & Sapphires.
