The word discriminate has two meanings. The Oxford Dictionary has:
1 Recognize a distinction; differentiate.
babies can discriminate between different facial expressions
2 Make an unjust or prejudicial distinction in the treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of race, sex, or age.
existing employment policies discriminate against women
So your example sentences need more context, to see what they are actually saying.
