You'd be surprised. People have no problem using racism as a weapon and extorting it for self-gain off the people who do think it's wrong. It's really sad.

As for the main topic, I haven't experienced "racism" exactly, but I have experienced prejudice. I had two separate homophobic managers that fired me after finding out I was transgender. One of them went as far as calling me a faggot while I was holding an exacto blade in my hand... That was my first real experience with prejudice, and it was really interesting to experience after I had time to cool down.
