Q: What is the difference between segregation and discrimination and apartheid ?
A: I found a definition, that explains everything:

If it is the difference between the terms "segregation" and "discrimination" that is not perfectly clear to you, then here it goes.

Segregation is to keep things or people apart. Most people generally think of this in terms of past policies such as the so-called separate but equal - separate drinking fountains for blacks and whites, making the former sit in the back of the bus or in a separate section of the movie theater.

Discrimination restricts access, rights and allows preferences for no other reason that race, religion, sexual orientation, age, etc. For example, in most countries, gays are discriminated against by not being allowed to marry. In the past, black children were discriminated against (and somewhere, perhaps they still are) by automatically placing them in non-college prep classes in school. Refusing to hire someone merely based on race, religion, age, etc., regardless of qualifications would be another common example.

As for your sentences, once you know the definitions, it's up to you to decide which one is to be used, separately or together, in accordance with the context.
