Such discrimination would run counter to the U.S. Constitution, e.g., as set forth in the Brown v. Board of Education (1954) precedent. Hence, even as such an amendment would have to survive all state challenges by virtue of its imposing a binding constitutional requirement on that state's courts, it would be struck down in the federal court system.
With respect to Proposition 8, which amended California's constitution, a similar dynamic is in play. The State's courts cannot overturn that law. However, same-sex couples are not without possible legal remedies. They have argued that the California law should be overturned, because it violates the U.S. Constitution. In yesterday's ruling, Judge Walker agreed. If, in fact, his opinion accurately reflects the requirements of the 14th Amendment, Proposition 8 and all similar efforts will also fail on grounds that they violate the U.S. Constitution.
In general, a state could adopt a greater range of "rights" than is called for in the U.S. Constitution without problem. However, if a state tries to impose greater restrictions than those permitted under the U.S. Constitution--even if allowable under its own constitution--the state would lose that legal challenge.
