No, no, no. You need to take this higher up and fight this. Tell them what really happened.
Sounds like the boss and racist coworker could be in it together. If the boss won't do anything, other than write you up, you need to take it to a higher up, but not until you've recorded this racist idiot a few times first. That way you have proof that he talks like this and it isn't just his (and your bosses) word against you. Because if you go to a higher up saying what the guy said and tell them that you told the boss, the boss did nothing about it and wrote you up, then chances are that boss is going to deny everything and it'll be your word against hers. Record a few times, get the proof, and then bring it to the appropriate people.
The majority of islamaphobes lump Muslims into an over generalized group of "brown people from the other side of the world that I hate". So yes, sometimes islamaphobia and racism are interchangeable. Especially when the 2 most common offensive terms used for Muslims are "sand monkey" and "sand nig**r".

I'm tempted to make a 9/11 joke myself, but knowing this community, I'm pretty sure my sick/dark sense of humor would just fly over the heads of a lot of people... Not to mention, either most of you guys would hang me, or the mods would ban me. ( ._.)
The fuck... I think OP was totally in the right for reporting the coworker. It's completely disrespectful and outrageously distasteful to make jokes about such a tragedy, especially on its anniversary. Jesus Christ, the supervisor should go fuck herself. I know some people will say that it's "just a joke", but no, it's not "just a joke". You're making a joke at the expense of so many people's suffering and that, to me, is disgusting.
If Holocaust jokes are still "too soon" then 9/11 jokes are most certainly in poor taste.
How about you being so sensitive he's just joking around and if he's being serious then just shut up he'll get his
