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.
Marnie (caucasion) will have a tougher time getting into college than Tyrone (native american) because of reverse racism.

The act of calling someone racist, or bringing race into something in order to win, it involves calling someone of another color racist therefore silencing them, this is using race to get ahead and is in fact just as racist as someone barring you form doing something based on color or creed
White Guy: Dude, you shouldn't have stolen my Tc
race_Card_user: Its because I'm <Inset Creed/Color here> Isn't it
White Guy: No its because its my TV i bought it with money i earned, what gives you a right to take it
Race_Card_User: Your just racist, why do you assume i took it
White Guy: Because your holding it
race_card_user: Hey I'm not the one who brought race into it
White Guy: This is just reverse Racism, your bringing race into this to win

When members of a race that is historically targeted, randomly accuse individuals of another race, of being racist, with no provocation, like a weapon.

reverse racism
A-"Please don't do that."
B-"Are you racist? Is this because of the color of my skin? Can't a blackman...."

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.

"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."

White college kids like to talk about reverse racism because they miss their sense of entitlement and are probably racists.
