In my opinion, prejudice has its’ roots in fear of an unknown. Everything new or different make us uncomfortable in some way and often we don’t want to get to know different culture, way of being etc. because it expect from us sort of involvement and even get out of our comfort zone. Prejudice can be somehow a form of discrimination, because it’s a first step of it. A person prejudice somebody or something and then, if it involes, person start to have a negative attidute to this. I’ve witnessed something similar to the situation presented in comic. My uncle has negative attitude to the foreginers, he doesn’t want them in Poland, but at the same time, he enjoys going on vacations abroad and he doesn’t mind the other culture, which he meets there.
