Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Zootopia is the nuance with which it handles the concept of prejudice. Both Judy and Woods are highly enthusiastic, surprisingly intelligent females with major chips on their shoulders, trying to make it in a profession to which society has told them they do not belong. Their only major difference is that Elle Woods also happens to be the whitest of white sorority betches, an incredibly privileged individual in America with whom we might not tend to sympathize.
But Judy is held back by the prejudices of the other police officers against the ability of a tiny, dumb, cute rabbit to be a serious member of their ranks.

Another, somewhat related thought: Speaking of foxes, Nick Wilde also faces prejudice, and his response to it—a self-fulfilling prophecy—is a great depiction of the psychological construct that perpetuates the cycle of poverty and discrimination in American ghettos.
In the mostly classless society of Zootopia, there is one species that, at least in the city itself, looks to be a legitimate underclass: The lesson for us to take away from this is that prejudice can have the effect of creating an unbridgeable gap between groups.
Having firmly established that this film concerns prejudice, we should distinguish between prejudice and racism. Prejudice is a negative attitude about someone held on the basis of cognitive constructs we call stereotypes; racism is these attitudes manifested as oppressive behavior, and therefore requires a power gradient. But the lack of classes in Zootopia belies a very important truth about the film: The two are seen spending time with one another, both during work, as in the scene where Judy and Nick are looking for the street racerand after hours, in the ending Gazelle concert scene.
Although they share mutual respect, they still partake in rounds of playful banter, innocently echoing their former rivalry. By this point in time, Judy playfully admits that she loves Nick, sentiments that seem to be returned.
Nick's Impression of Judy Nick views Judy as a nuisance at first. He also mentions having noticed her canister of fox repellent when they first met, leading him to believe her to be a bigoted individual, which he detests.
He spends their first few hours together, as accomplices, making attempts to rid himself of her grasp, unsuccessfully, due to the fact that she is just as cunning. Their first interactions contradict the stereotype, and one that Nick initially abides by, of the "sly fox and dumb bunny". Over time, however, Nick learns more about Judy and her persistence in cracking her first case, discovering that her will to prove herself on the force had been motivated by the prejudice given to her by her fellow officers at the police department, namely Chief Bogo.
Nick personally relates to this as he, too, had made attempts to join a team, to fit in, only to be scorned and shunned due to his species.

With this in mind, he makes it his goal to ensure Judy achieves her dream of proving her worth, going as far as to explain his backstory to her, believing her to be deserving of knowing the rationale behind his ill treatment towards her at the start. This is a significant moment for Nick, as he had once vowed to never expose his hidden vulnerability.
Judy, in turn, comforts Nick and pushes him to understand that he's more than what the world sees him as, and although he initially avoids acknowledging this, he is shown to have taken it to heart once Judy offers him the chance of becoming her partner on the police force.
It is further revealed just how strongly he values Judy and her friendship after the latter's unintentionally prejudiced words against predators during a press conference.

He laments to the bunny his feeling of betrayal, after the one individual in the world that had finally believed in him turned out to be as prejudiced as everyone else. The fact that Nick had filled out the application Judy gave him just moments before implies that he was more than happy to join the ZPD and become her partner.
Following their falling out, Nick doesn't entirely forget Judy, having held onto her carrot pen the entire time of their separation.
