Such oppression ranges from marginalization to physical abuse to childhood emotional scarring to the gym teacher shouting "DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH" to every Chinese kid he sees. But none of these examples are anywhere near as catastrophic when compared to a reactionary anti-white joke told by a black standup comedian. From this reasoning emerges the term "reverse racism".
With respect to the term itself, "reverse racism" implies that there is backwards logic behind racism against Caucasians, and that it is somehow more deserving of disapproval than just regular racism.
Furthermore, "racism" and "reverse racism" can be interpreted as binary oppositions, where "racism" is the (socially conditioned to be) acceptable state, while "reverse racism" is the unacceptable counterpart.
Reverse racism can also be interpreted as a defense mechanism for "white man's guilt".
"Reverse racism hurts my feelings." - racist
Reverse racism, in actuality, shouldn't even be a term... It's described as the act of racism against a majority (typically used in context of whites). But...isn't that just plain old regular racism? Last time I checked, Caucasian WAS a race. And I'm willing to bet that any other majority suffering from "reverse racism" is a race too. So why isn't it just racism? Why give it a fancy new term? If you wanted to take the literal definition, reverse racism would actually be the opposite: supporting a race as equal to another. Just a thought.
"Wait, isn't that reverse racism?" - White kid
"Shut up, you're suspended too!" - Principal
With that out of the way...
"Reverse-racism" is a term for racism directed toward the majority or dominant "race" in a society; usually, it is an accidental byproduct of an attempt to protect an oppressed minority from racism.
2. To automatically assume that one is racist because of their race.
3. To make racist slurs or jokes when claiming to be a victim of racism.
