Defenses against discrimination must start within yourself. In order to win against the humiliation of being discriminated, make sure to have a clear picture of your identity. Your identity includes everything that is you, your strengths, weaknesses, skills, achievements, mistakes and aspirations in life. All these, are small fragments of your totality. If you have strong connection with all these fragments there is a lesser chance that you will be affected of whatever discrimination that will come your way. You only need to make a little adjustment, show some humility,patience and perseverance and you don't have to worry about discrimination.
