Should hate speech be protected speech?

Should speech that is racist, sexist, or "xenophobic", of otherwise offensive be protected speech?

I think so.

For example, if someone were to wear a shirt with offensive remarks or say offensive comments.

My "liberal" ex-friend and I had a debate about that. She believed hate speech should be illegal, while I thought it should be protected.

I am all about first amendment rights more than anything.
