I am white and have experienced most of the bad things you are describing here - had my receipts checked as I left a store, was seated in bad seats in a restaurant, had the waitress ignore me, Uber drivers have cancelled my ride, rejected from many job applications, taxis have passed me up, etc. Not all the time or most of the time, but enough that I don't walk around carefree with the feeling like I am genie who just says "Open sesame!" and everything I want comes true.
