Although it’s important to express your feelings and emotions in relationships, we must understand that they aren’t tangible and are nothing more than figments of our imagination. The communication we should have is why those

Because it does.  It is the very fabric that has woven humankind together in America. Regardless of how you feel about race relations and think they disappeared right along with Jim Crow laws, you are wrong.  Race is still a very underrated systematic problem that has been wreaking havoc on minorities in America for centuries.
