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.

Reverse racism is restricting opportunities of a race because they are the majority, giving minorities an advantage solely based on their race.

For whatever reason, reverse racism is a term used to describe racism towards Caucasians.

Several fucking idiots have decided to reject the dictionary's definition of racism and say racism towards whites isn't a thing. This is an incredibly dangerous idea because in popular culture, you can say anything about whites, but if you said that exact same thing about a black person you would be destroyed and deemed a bigot.

When someone says reverse racism doesn't exist, just remember:

In the 2016 Dallas police officers shooting, one of the suspects said he sought to kill white officers and whites in general.

A gay black man in Virginia shot a white reporter live on TV in hopes to start a race war.

None of these instances are racist, if you listen to the fucking idiots.
Reverse racism is a thing.

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."
