I don't know anything about societal antisemtism and discrimination, but theologically speaking, the idea that God broke his covenant with the Jews in favor of the new covenant of Christ is just one theory out of several.

I just happened to read this because I was wondering about the same thing. The argument that makes the most sense to me is that Jesus and the New Testament are extensions to the 'old' covenant God made with the Jews. If you follow the Jewish faith then you will be saved. If you're a non-Jew and follow Christ you will also be saved.

In the New Testament several references are made to the 'old' law and Jesus being unwilling to break it. The water into wine story showed that even if he didn't feel like doing it, he still had to do what his mother asked of him, i.e. honor your mother and father. There are a lot of references like this where Jesus said directly or indirectly it wasn't his duty to replace the old law or old covenant.
