    This paper deals with young people who declare themselves discriminated because of their ethnicity or colour. The aim is to evaluate the effect of the discrimination feeling on professional paths for young people 7 years after having left school. We use the statistical survey of Cereq Génération 97 (7years) and the clustering method using self-organizing maps (Kohonen algorithm). Eight classes of professional paths are exposed. Two kinds of segmentation of professional paths are obtained. The "inter-class" segmentation: young people who declare themselves discriminated are more present in temporary-work class or unemployment class. This finding is consolidated by some qualitative talks with young people who declare themselves discriminated. They explained the refusal of victimization in the labour market. The "intra-class" segmentation: a lot of inequalities exit inside classes. Working full time or become a manager is more difficult for young people who declare themselves discriminated even if their professional path is good
