Redhats are neither whitehat nor blackhat, but a mix of both. Adapted from early RPG games where white mages used healing, protective "good" spells, black mages used elemental, destructive "bad" spells, and red mages had a selection of spells from both.

Examples of redhats:
- People who are hired to find security holes in a network, do so, but create new exploits in order to take advantage of later.

- Someone who breaks into a secure area and then informs the owner that they can fix the security holes if they hire them.

- Someone who works in network security and uses their job experience to take advantage of exploits either within their own company or elsewhere.
This redhat is offering to fix our security holes for $5,000.

A name for racist, misogynist, ultra conservative white supremacist always-privileged Republicans, after the tendency to find most of them wearing the red trucker hats bearing the campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" of 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald J Trump.

Red hats are offended by Equal Rights movements because the idea that equality might be achieved by raising the oppressed without lowering the un-oppressed is a foreign concept they are incapable of understanding.

They talk about preserving Men's Rights without taking into account that (white) Men have never been in danger of losing any of their rights, or appropriate Black Lives Matter to say All Lives Matter, when people of color are still fighting discrimination of which privileged (white) people are unaware.
"Twitter is now useless for following breaking news, click on #chelseaNYC and all you get is red hats screeching hate slogans & racial slurs."--NYT bestselling author David Wong
