Calling someone racist, even if they arent, just to get away with something.

When a minority in America (and more recently, Caucasians) try to call foul on a situation that is detrimental to them and say the situation is racially discriminatory. Now, whether it is or not is irrelevant, as such stories are taken as gospel.

When an ethnic minority makes unfounded assertions that he/she is being rejected by society because those who made the decision are racist.

A reference to pokers Ace Card which is up someones sleeve. The race card refers to having an unbeatable card in a card game, which, when played, must be either accepted or trumped by an entire hand of cards (see [Rodney King]).
The reality of the implementation of this term is that a lot of people misuse it in order to gain an advantage that they would not otherwise have. It plays into the idea that there actually are races, and that our differences matter more than our similarities. There is a valid use for this, but it is far overused and this overuse does not actually promote equality, it destroys it. The term race card implies that the entire issue is a game of one-upsmanship and that its just a matter of who gains the upperhand.
The race card is in play any time someone uses the issue of race to benefit their position or defend their actions, and is used in such a way to construe that someone is being racist.

A false claim of racism used in attempt to win a debate/argument or escape punishment. This is generally used by people who have no legitimate argument or excuse for their actions.
Originally used mainly by individual African Americans for personal reasons, the race card is now commonly played by liberals of all races in an attempt to silence anybody who disagrees with them or opposes their agenda. This is similar to how conservatives used the concept of patriotism to silence their critics after 9/11.
