If I think I've been discriminated against at work what should I do first?

Question Details:

I am African-American working with mostly Latinos. They call me the "N" word all the time and the boss doesn't do anything even though I have complained. Also, my job is on an on-call basis and the boss who hands out the assignments always gives the jobs to the Hispanics and not the Caucasians and African Americans. Many Caucasians and African Americans quite because they can't get the assignments. Also in our job safety meetings that do safety meetings in Spanish so I'm not able to understand. I believe I'm being discriminated against. what to do next? Go and tell HR, file an EEO complaint or call a lawyer?
