When a white person, in their attempt to take every last thing away from non-whites, claims to be a victim of racism in order to trivialize or deaden the impact of acts of racism perpetrated by whites.
"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."

"Reverse Racism" is a term used to describe the act of racism from a minority group towards a majority group. It is a "politically correct" term used to make minorities feel better about themselves and to allow them to be racist without the connotations that come with being racist.
Jethro: "That nigger called me a "cracker" and said my skin is so white it caused his illegitimate mother to go blind. Damn racist nigger, that's what he is."

Charles: "Jethro, you are so uneducated. That poor African-American man has been stepped upon by us white folk for hundreds of years. He deserves the right to be racist to you because his great-great-great-grandfather may have been a slave and because he has been humiliated all his life because he has been living on the tax dollars of other people and has never had to work a day in his life. Jethro when an African-American appears to be racist it is called "reverse racism"."

Jethro: "That's some bull shit, that is some retarded, liberal bull shit. Niggers be racist just like whites be racist. Don't need to sugar coat the truth."

A term created by white racists in an attempt to describe what they feel is racism against them as a majority blaming reverse racism for their failures. Mostly these claims often appear to be an attempt to deflect attention away from horrific racism of the past in the United States. Those claiming Reverse Racism are often young white males who've been affected by the recent attempts to right the wrongs of the past. Many times they themselves are secretly racist and often harbor racist ideals but look for opportunities to include minorities in the negatives while simultaneously resisting opportunities to include minorities in positive things. Reverse racism is often a way to show their insensitivity toward racial issues experienced by minorities that do not affect them directly.
A white guy cant get in college of his choice and claims reverse racism. Fact: only about 30% of student bodies in the U.S. are made up of minorities yet these individuals claim they cannot go to college due to reverse racism.

when a majority realize for racial equality to really happen they have to sacrifice a little instead of having it magically happen.
white person: dude why is there so much financial aid for minorities and so little for white people. this is reverse racism
other person: well cause minorities are at a disadvantage. a lot of them dont come from rich homes because their ancestors had a very low standing in america. their children are at a disadvantage at schools. without aid, very few minorities would reach for the stars and rather stay in the mud.

It isn't on the site yet.

It will read this way:

Reverse Racism

1) The act of displaying racist styled behaviors against the majority group, the group commonly known for its historical systematic racism (e.g. blacks flipping the script on whites in America), but doing so in the name of righting the wrongs of racism. Affirmative action is not a form of reverse racism unless stronger majority candidates were passed for weaker minority candidates BECAUSE of skin color. It is a systematic decision. That is reverse racism.

2) Preferential treatment for or giving unwarranted benefit of the doubt to a minority group or person because of illogical reasons stemming from past systematic racism (misplaced fear, white-guilt, trying too hard to appear non-racist, etc).

3) Giving preference to one person over another simply because of their being a part of a minority race which has been under-privileged in the past.
-Imagine a white kid and black kid getting in a fight in school. Now let's say the black kid started it. The principle will not punish the white kid BECAUSE he didn't start it but might commit reverse racism by subsequently not punishing the black kid as he should (because he started it) BECAUSE he doesn't want the headache or possible backlash of suspending a black child.
-"There is a right and wrong way to battle racism, and reverse racism is the unreasonable and unethical way."
