He has a point. The following quote is from the movie Philidephia: "This 
is the essence of discrminiation formulating oppions on others not based 
on there individual merrits, but rather on there membership of a group 
with the same charakteristics."

Saying you feel discriminated agains implies that you are being juged on 
your membership of a group.
