reverse racism is the pot calling the kettle black essentially. it's fighting racism with racism, hence REVERSE racism. it's not a 'fancy new term' describing a person. you can say something that's reverse racist, and you can display reverse racism, but you yourself cannot be reverse racist. you'd just be racist.
Malcolm X saw oppression from Caucasians against minorities due to racist ideologies. In turn, he decided to say fuck all Caucasians and became racist himself(until a few years before his death) Hence, he was reversing the racism on himself and starting to do the same thing Caucasians were doing to minorities. This is how reverse racism may be defined - An act or ideology, not a person.

"Well, we took chocolate and made that white, we turned Jazz into Kenny G, we turned Chinese Food into chicken balls, we turned rice into Uncle Ben's, we turned Funk into Disco, we turned Mexican Food into Taco Bell, we've colonized just about every Latin, Asian and African country, what's there left for us to take?? OHHHH!!! Let's take RACISM, make it our own and call it 'reverse racism'!!"

"I supported that poor black family whose son was beaten up by that gang of seven skinheads, until I realized that the black boy was using reverse racism on those poor young Nazis. That's right, the racism of those seven white boys was not as great as the reverse racism of that one black boy, whose influence and power clearly overwhelmed the poor white boys into beating him up."
