Anger is like flowing water, there is nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow.
Hate is like stagnant water; anger that you denied yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow; water that you gathered in one place and left to forget. Stagnant water becomes dirty, stinky, disease-ridden, poisonous, deadly; that is your hate. 
On flowing water travels little paper boats; paper boats of forgiveness. Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow along with all the paper boats of forgiveness. Be human.

Anger is an emotion, a healthy one, a natural response; and needs to be expressed. Not turned inward or buried; leaving it to fester and create a plethora of other problems. 

If there is an issue that makes you angry, you are usually responding to a button relating to fear, defense or shame. Anger needs to be addressed; either by expressing it or dealing with it (healing the source of the anger) Expressing it is the fastest and easiest solution, but investigating the source is always the answer... it enables you to acknowledge and release.

But for now.... take a deep breathe, and express. I'm not suggesting rage, I am, though, saying... stand up and make your presence known,  let the people in question know that you are opposed to, and affected by this issue. Anger can be stated, it doesn't need to be explosive or revengeful. 

Anger does not go away by itself. 

Anger does need to be dealt with, just like grief, resentment, shame and guilt. It's all part of the journey, it is what you are here to learn.
