AD 55 – 135) was a Greek-speaking Stoic philosopher. He was born a slave at Hierapolis, Phrygia (present day Pamukkale, Turkey), and lived in Rome until his banishment, when he went to Nicopolis in north-western Greece for the rest of his life. His teachings were written down and published by his pupil Arrian in his Discourses and Enchiridion.Epictetus taught that philosophy is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline. To Epictetus, all external events are beyond our control; we should accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately. However, individuals are responsible for their own actions, which they can examine and control through rigorous self-discipline.Epictetus was born c. 55 A.D., presumably at Hierapolis, Phrygia.

If non-blacks were to empathize (for lack of a better word) with white folks, what will be a reason to discriminate against others and institutionalize racism? Let’s look at a few angles. Hatred?
