You should then file a complaint to the local EEOC office, and be able to show the previous statements made to the HR, if you did not send a written letter send one now stating you feel you cannot perform your duties due to the racist remarks. Than file your complaint after a few weeks if nothing is done. Documentation is important in these cases.

The law states you must reasonably believe that tolerating the hostile work environment is a condition of continued employment. In other words, the victim or witnesses typically must reasonably believe that they have no choice, but to endure a hostile workplace in order to keep their jobs.
