Why do you think your human resources department cares that he's Black? Is there some labor shortage out there we don't know about?

Based on your previous posts, if I recall correctly, the reason this seems to be tolerated has something to do with that you're the only one who actually has to deal with his behavior. And so, in as much as you're not that directly important to your boss, he's not going to expend any energy or political capital to do anything for you. However, as agouderia points out, once you demonstrate his ineptitude for others, that could very well prove the catalyst for changing his (boss') ways, if only to just rehabilitate the evaluation of his own performance.

It will probably piss him (Boss) off. However, if he doesn't like or care about you already, might not make that much difference in the long run, other than getting either him or the other guy (co-worker) fired, moving on to somewhere else.

Life rewards actions. Do nothing, and the dynamic likely perpetuates, culminating in a decline, sometime more or less gradual. Do something, put something up, on a consistent basis, and you might eventually be rewarded for it.
