Yes, it is illegal racist discrimination or harassment, and you could report it to the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or state civil/equal rights agency, which may investigate and take action against the employer. However, *you* are not entitled to compensation, since you have not had action taken against you and have suffered no harm from these comments.
