The policy or doctrine of projecting your own racism; specifically, of believing that the advancement of any member of a race other than your own is a result of racism on the part of those allowing said advancement. Sometimes referred to by the illogical term "reverse racism". Derived from the frequency of such complaints from pill-addicted right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Fake outrage, usually generated as a way of trying to create a controversy for the purpose of political smearing. Often the main weapon of right-wing bloggers who don't use threats to achieve their goals. Usually involves claims of racism or making huge deals out of small details such as lapel pins.

etymology: faux (French word meaning fake) + outrage (furor or indignation)
