Racist old white people.

 My boyfriend's parents are racist. It started off as a few little jokey comments and has escalated to 15 minute trades about the asian "drug dealer" (a random asian guy who happens to have his hair in a bun) in the lobby of their building who they're watching from the car. There are at least two offensive comments every time I'm around them.

Every time I don't say something I feel guilty, and I resent my boyfriend for not saying anything to them either. He is close to his parents and I honestly think he has just turned a blind eye because he doesn't want to believe his parents are that ignorant/hateful whatever. 

Have you ever been in a situation like this? What should I say/do? I've been trying to get my boyfriend to say something, but he's afraid of it escalating into huge fight that will dissolve into them never talking to him again.
