So Germany, Japan (and other countries that experienced destructive wars) have eliminated racism?



Well, eliminated is a bit strong, as you can never eliminate an ideology.

The main point, however, is that Europe has shown over a span of several decades that restricting hate speech a) does not lead to any slippery slope where other forms of speech are restricted and b) that restrictions of hate speech are effective at reducing racism in society.
