In your sentences 2 & 3 you omitted the preposition 'against' where it was needed. It is also possible to 'discriminate in favour of somebody or something. This is also known as positive discrimination. Hope this helps Bob
Yes, sentence one is fine. In two and three you need to add the word 'against,' after the word 'discriminate.'
