Free Speech and Racism

There's a post on Random Waves of Insight about how racist remarks got Imus fired, but business brought him back. It's called Don Imus Is Back! A Win For Free Speech?

I for one am glad one slip up can't (completely) ruin someone's life. I value free speech and forgiveness. Still, it's easy to find negative feelings for someone who holds to ideas of generic hatred.

I wonder what the public consensus on free speech vs. racist remarks is? Should we tolerate foul ideas in order to preserve an open dialogue with everyone on all subjects?
