Reverse racism: giving favoritism to an individual or group within a subset of people on the basis of their belonging to that subset of people.
These actions are examples of reverse racism:

Giving extra hours to workers on the basis of their national origin.

"Pedro gets to work overtime because he's Mexican and Mexicans work."

Hiring workers on the basis of their gender.

Employer: "Congratulations Bimby, you got the job!"
Cindy: "Thank you so much! But, my name is 'Cindy' not 'Bimby' silly!"

Loving someone because they are from a country you like.

Infatuated woman: "You French people are so sexy! I love you Pierre!"
Claude: "My name isn't Pierre... "

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."

Giving favoritism to a particular race in an effort to disprove racism. This differs from normal racism, in that it is not exclusive because of race, but inadvertently goes beyond equality to an obvious reversal of descriminating. It is not racism in the fact that it is not intended to favor, but to disprove favoritism. However, favoritism is the unintended byproduct.
America was so ready to prove the decline of racism, that they elected Olama through an act of reverse racism, though they had not evaluated his political values.

the act of acting prejudice against someone of their own race, especially because that person does not fit the typical persona of a particular race.
Blacks calling another black person "white" because they act, to them, more like a white person than a black person. Calling someone a "white nigger" would be a prime example of reverse racism.
