I think one of the sources of prejudice is culture where we live and people who we believe as an authority. If they have a concrete opinion about something, we will follow them no matter what we think it’s good or bad. I really like the book “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen. In this story it is shown how significant is your origin to mean something in society and that your actual prejudice can be only defeated by love.
In the comic there was one photo of an elderly woman in the bus and I was very touched by this, for me a lot of elderly people are discriminated for various reasons. I also think that prejudice can lead to discrimination.
