What you describe is clear sexual harassment or discrimination. Since you have clearly made management aware of this and they have refused to take action, the company can be held liable for its failure to prevent illegal harassment/discrimination. Contact the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to file a complaint; at the same time, you can also file a complaint for the racial or national origin based discrimination. The EEOC's mission is to prevent this type of discrimination/harassment; let them help you.
