|"the source of Elizabeth's prejudice against Darcy"?

in consequence of the missive, Very appropriate indeed, penned by Tracy W
I don't believe Elizabeth is so much proud as to be prejudiced towards Darcy only after his comment on her beauty...She is proud of course to accept his being so rude... But, IMHO, her prejudice is formed by his overall behaviour towards everyone:he is a snob, looking down to them and that's it for her.
But then she says: "...I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine." What does she mean? She would think him a fine gentleman if he hadn't made this particular comment??? I'm confused...
