The paternalistic lecture given by Whites toward a person of color defining what should and shouldn't be considered racist, while obliviously exhibiting their own racism.
When Dr. Laura Schlessinger used the N-Word eleven times on her radio program, it was to explain to an African-American guest why they shouldn't be offended by it's usage; that patronizing rant was yet another example of White-'splaining.

2. When a white person commits a heinous act only to have it explained away by other way people as "not that bad" or is otherwise given the benefit of the doubt in a way that would not never happen for anybody who wasn't white.

3. Actually it doesn't even have to be a heinous act. It can even be normal behavior. Like the way they admire other white people from Europe. They would break their necks trying to help someone who speaks French or German. Let someone speak Spanish and they just shout something like, "Speak English!"

Ex. Mexicans are "foreigners" or "immigrants" (even thought they're actually from the same continent!) but white people from Europe are "travelers" or "expats".
Real life examples of White-'splaining:

Real Life Example 1: White man who is the father of 2 was found guilty of possessing kiddie porn.
Response from another white person: "Just because he had kiddie porn doesn't mean he was a bad father - unless it was his kids in the pictures."

Real Life Example 2: Those black people just keep shooting each other. Their neighborhoods are filled with crime. We should lock them all up.
Response from white people after Columbine, Newtown, Chris Benoit and every other white mass shooting: This a terrible tragedy but there's nothing we can do about it. It just happened.

Random Example 3: White guy robs a bank: He was at the end of his rope trying to feed his family. Mexican guy robs a bank: Those people shouldn't be here anyway.
