'''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 proclaiming to be above-it-all, neutral and nonbiased. Others 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, even gender.

'''Reverse Racism''' is [[racism]] by or for the benefit of groups that have historically been the victims of racism.  As such, it does not refer to the "reverse" of racism, but to a reversal in the ''direction'' of racism.
