    someone who exposes racism is cast as the real racist; the perpetrator is cast as the real victim.

    This is just right-wing jujitsu, a move now so reflexive as to be rendered meaningless. They need such moves, though, to fill their hate media air time and divert attention from their  policy vacuum. They probably also have to feed their addiction to the brain chemicals that are released by ginned up outrage.
