'''Reverse Racism''' is an accusation of racism where no racism existsIt is a unique and deliberate focus on race in an attempt to discredit others as racist while the accusers maintain a false claim of being neutral to racial issues. Most users of this term are unapologetic about racial bias, refering to groups, whether guilty or innocent, as oppressors that need to be exposed. It is subtle in its use  Reverse racism is considered hate speech and affects all races and religious groups.

Example of reverse racism include:

McCain is an honorable person as proven by his 28 years of elected office and his dedication to this country during a time of war. This has not stopped his opponents from trying to associate him with racism by means of reverse racism.
