Cicada - Shaun Tan

DISCUSSION POINT: Cicada is looked down upon by co-workers because ‘he is not human’. They ignore him and he is forced to use a bathroom twelve blocks away.

Why are people so ready to reject those who are different? Use the label note or mic tools to respond to the above question.
