In Reply to: Redbone by Larry D. Keels of 505

My Grandmother used to use the word "Redbone". I think it means a cajun or Frenchman who intermarried a negro. I dated a young man from Louisiana who was really good-looking and she did not want me to go out with him as she felt he may have been a "Redbone". She would have died if I had children with negro features. Hope this helps you. I have not heard the term in a long time and it is not in my American College Dictionary.
