Cause of suppressed inner anger

   Q. What causes suppressed inner anger?

   A. Reaction to attitudes, ideas, and sentiments current in 
   society that are against you.  Examples:  Idea of IQ and IQ 
   tests might cause suppressed anger in people who are slow.  The 
   social idea or attitude that negros are inferior might cause 
   suppressed anger in negros (even though not all whites, perhaps 
   only a small minority, subscribe to the idea).  An idea may be 
   especially irritating and disconcerting if there is some truth 
   in it, some justification for it, or it is very difficult to 
   argue against.  In such a case a person can start chafing 
   against the idea, get angrier and angrier the more he thinks 
   about it, "hang-up" on it, develop a complex on it, and become 
   bitter and angry against people and society.  Note that a 
   current idea or attitude is something very illusive and 
   intangible and that anger directed at such a thing is different 
   from that directed toward something concrete (like another 
   person).  You can't call it into a fist fight, challenge it, or 
   demand a retraction.  You just have to live with it, accept it.  
   More than that, the idea may die, go out of fashion, and yet 
   still live in your imagination; only a few people may believe 
   in it and you may still be making a big thing of it.
