I don't know the situation. I personally think that Thanksgiving is one of those occassions where you should be allowed to have that extra piece, as long as the kid is not gorging him/herself. I allowed my son to have a slice of pie and 2 pieces of fudge. He is not overweight, but normally, he is allowed one dessert, just to teach him balance. Either way, I try not to make a big deal out of it.
As for the discrimination, I think it is definitely wrong. I think it's telling the girl that she is being treated differently and at that age that can hurt self-esteem and/or start eating issues for her. She might get resentful and start sneaking food, for example. Of course, I don't know the circumstances of the real situation nor the relationships involved.
I think it's done with, so I would let it go. I think it is something to have their parents take up with your mother. How do your siblings feel? If you want to confront your mother, it might be okay to let her know what you thought, but try not to get involved too deep, since they are not your children and it might cause family tension.
