More often than not, reverse racism is in the form of giving special benefits or opportunities to people who belong to a group which has been under privaleged in the past. In effect, you are essentially committing a racist act by giving preference to one person over another because of their race, religion, or ethnicity, rather than their personal merit, skills, or knowledge.
"That black kid started a fight with that white kid but we're only going to suspend the white kid because we don't want to be racist against black people." - Liberal Principal (or Conservative Principal scared of a lawsuit)
"Wait, isn't that reverse racism?" - White kid
"Shut up, you're suspended too!" - Principal
