look, just read a fucking dictionary and shut up about it. you will see
that, wonder of wonders, "discriminate" actually has several meanings
and several different contexts in which it can be used.
really. truly. it's a fact.
ps: you also have a bad habit of chopping off quotes at a point which

ignore the point or invent your own straw-man, but it's really very poor
