So like why arent anti-up quark or something like that in the standard model?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that antiparticles are included in the Standard Model?

"Every one of the particles shown above also have antimatter 'anti-particles'."

I was taught that the standard model included all fundamental particles as well as their corresponding antiparticles. The link above also seems to imply this.

Thank you, so there are antiparticle for the particles in the standard model, but they arent included?

I think you mean the anti-particle is not shown/included in the standard model chart, rather than the standard model. If that is the case, the chart does not indeed show the anti-particle for the fermions. The situation is similar to the periodic table of elements. All natural elements have isotopes but the common periodic table does not show the isotopes.

it would be kinda discrimination to just have one type of particle ? this particle apartheid has no place in 21st century physics.

I think this is spot on
