    Can someone explain to me the difference between a redbone woman and a yellow bone woman.

    Because I am confused.

    Is Lauren London considered a yellow bone or a red bone?

    Can someone please explain.

    Lauren is red imo.


    yellow bone


    red bone

    a red bone can pass for a mexican and a yellow can pass for white.

    Ok, that is what I was thinking.

    I'm more attracted to yellow bone women.

    But I prefer to marry a red bone women.

    It seem that red women age better than yellow bone women.

    Ok, because when I was down in New Orleans for the NBA All-Star game. It was nothing but very light skinned cleo women walking around.

    I was in heaven that weekend.

    I heard light skinned cleo women in New Orleans be on that crazy shit though.

    Yeah in Texas, a light skin woman is considered a yellow bone and a light brown woman is a red bone.

    Me and other people from round my way classify them as the same. But if you wanna be techincal....

    Tisha campbell is a perfect example of a yellabone.

    Jada pinkett or sumbody like beyonce is more of a redbone imo. Not quite as bright as tisha campbell but not dark either. Basically a very very light brown.

    ^^lmao

    This is the explanation I read before, as to where Yella came from. I never got the Red part, but always took it as 1)mixed at some point with 'redskin' aka Native American, or 2) light enough to see them blush.
    Here's more of a background thing than explanation, at least for Yella....

    "When the French ruled New Orleans there were many, many brothels and the highest priced was paid for the mixed African/European free prostitutes. It is well known that many slave owners raped their slaves and the children often escaped or were freed by the owners (how does one explain little mixed slaves running around the plantation)? This was not always a rule but many mixed slaves made up the population of free Africans in the colonies.
    But. . . no matter how light, no matter how blue their eyes were, the High Yella's were still not allowed in the white community and in the black community with their perfumed skin, fine clothes and perhaps slightly uppity attitude the term High Falutin' Yella was coined."

    Anyways, I'm with Cheekz; it still goes back to color-struck bullshit. I guess you can't blame anyone who isn't completely colorblind because where does it start and where does it stop? Only when we all just enlighten ourselves as a whole and accept each other as equals can we discuss this type of thing, and not look bad as a race OF HUMANS. That's a fantasy world though, so refer to my reference above (and don't bother trying to call me out as a hypocrite because I recognized it when I dignified this thread with my first two paragraphs.) :/
