Mensagem:  there are many people that are discriminated against .
there are many people that are discriminated.

The first sentence fragment is correct.

The second sentence fragment needs the word "against" to make sense.

There are many people who are discriminated against because of their poverty.

There are many people who are discriminated against despite the laws that prohibit such treatment.
