A professor of the Australian National University used a PPT at a computer class to show that he will not tolerate plagiarism or cheating by any of the students. Unfortunately, the use of Mandarin has sparked off outrage among Chinese students. Later he sent an email and offered them apology. What do you think? Did the professor discriminate against Chinese students?

Chinese students are good at cheating since examinations were introduced to measure their understanding of materials learnt.
Most of them studying overseas pride themselves and bragged in public.
Recently, some students sent overseas said that they did not prepare but got top scores because their tests were given to them weeks ahead for preparation.
NO WONDER THEY ALWAYS FAIL AND EVEN TOOK THEIR OWN LIVES!

I do not believe it was shown to specifically address Chinese students.  Instead it was politeness to also show in Chinese language since there are many Chinese students. In the USA it might be shown in several different languages as well.

The professor erred by only putting it in Chinese.  He'd have been better off to use Mandarin, Indian (Hindi?) and Bahasa, as that pretty much covers most of the students.  

I can understand his frustration though.  When a friend of mine was doing her MBA there was an "open text" exam which was taken online.  20 of the Indians in the class all got together at one house to answer the questions by cheating.  This sort of event is quite common at many universities these days and all students tend to get involved.
