I'm having a hard time understanding the relation between the two, maybe I'm a bit dense.

I'll go with "No Racism".

Maybe we're both dense.
Last time I checked calling someone an offensive racial slur is NOT freedom of speech.

Also same with "No Racism".

Though it would be difficult if suddenly everyone gets offended by a certain word even though that word is used generally to describe that person. Still differs from racism though.

No Racism or No Freedom of Speech?

This topic is as bad as saying:
Would you want to be Black or White?

For me color doe's not matter, Free speech doe's,i would not want to live under Dictator conditions,although the UK is beginning to feel like a Dictator run country, our MP's are a waste of space,not good.

No racism.

Freedom of speech is nice and all but without racism there's less hate, and hate can cause a great deal of things.

Also... what is the connection between the two? >.>

Freedom of speech is great in theory, but in modern society it's used as a crutch to be able to say any stupid **** which rolls off the tongue. It's abused far more than it's used.

Some of the most indescribably ignorant, stupid, degrading, ridiculous comments have been ignored and shrugged off because someone's said those three little words. "Freedom of speech"

I'm not saying abolish freedom of speech by any means, but in this case no racism wins by miles.

Freedom of speech will lead to racism somehow.

Well racism has been around much longer than the concept of freedom of speech.

Do people think that if you get rid of freedom of speech that somehow racism magically disappears. I think history shows that is not the case. Racism can and does flourish in any environment.

With freedom of speech you can also speak out against the racists. If you live in a nation with no freedom of speech and the government is itself racist then you can do nothing to speak out against it, unless you want to end up in jail or dead.
