reverse racial pass
 n.— «These scenarios all involve what is sometimes termed the “reverse racial pass,” which Philip Brian Harper has defined as “any instance in which a person legally recognized as white effectively functions as a non-white person in any quarter of the social arena.” In this book I explore such cases of “lost whiteness.”» —“‘Near Black'” by Baz Dreisinger New York Times Jan. 25, 2009.
