You said "Children are taken away from abusive parents all of the time".--- Correct.
You said "and they should be".---
Absolutely.
You said "Sometimes the government should have that power to step in".----
For physical &/or emotional child abuse, absolutely yes.
But, for freedom of speech, no.
You said "just as verbal threatening isn't a right or considered freedom of speech".----
Correct.
Also, a person yelling fire in a theater sure isn't a form of freedom of speech.
Because it violates other peoples rights.
Teaching a young child hate and possibly harm other races of people based on race when that child will have to live among many other races is a form of emotional abuse. Yelling fire in a theater, telling someone that they are going to be killed etc.. are can all be subjective to how other view what was being said and how it was said.

No.

Not according to the United States laws regarding freedom of speech.

In line with freedom of speech, is freedom of thought.

Oh, someone (Or a few people at once) yelling fire in a theater is an absolute in regards to the United States laws.----

It is not a form of freedom of speech. It is not protected.

Someone (Or a couple of people at once) threatening death upon another person.-----

It is not a form of freedom of speech. It is not protected.

If parents tell their son to go out & attack a person of a different race.---- If their son does this.----

This is not speech which is protected.

The son will be prosecuted. The parents will be prosecuted.

But, if parents speak negative things about a different racial group to their children.-----

This is protected.

This is freedom of speech.

This falls fully within the realms of the protections of the clauses of the freedom of speech laws in the United States.

Clearly, the son will be prosecuted for this. Rightly so.

But, the parents won't.

Because the parents speaking negative things to their son about people who are of a different race.---- This fully falls within the protections of the clauses of the freedom of speech laws in the United States.

For the parents to be prosecuted.---- The parents would have had to have given outright & direct orders to their son to attack the person who is of a different race.

But, if the parents didn't do this.------ The parents were fully within the realm of the protections in the United States freedom of speech laws.
