Held back in what way? There is less racism in both Canada and the United States than at any time in our history. The KKK used to have 11 million members. Now it's down to about 7,000. There are, at best, a few hundred organized Nazis. Their numbers aren't growing.
Context matters here and that context deals with the propagation of discrimination.
Quite aside from the logical issues involved, such as what opinions gets banned due to who hates them (hint, yours are hated by a LOT of people) there is the evidence of what this sort of thing accomplishes.
Nothing, basically. The French have such laws, as do the British and Germans. Has it made racism go away? Nope. Has it led to peace and harmony? Nope. There are race riots in the UK and France, and groups of violent Nazis setting fire to refugee hostels in Germany. There is more racial violence and hatred between races and religions there than there is HERE.
