How to explain I didn't learn anything the entire year I was at a company?

To be honest I feel I was discriminated against and that contributed to my being excluded from meetings and not being given things to do despite asking repeatedly. I can't say those things in an interview. Should I turn the focus to personal projects and just Pretend I was working on those at work instead of at night? Should I pretend the team was mostly doing maintenance rather than adding new features?

Another issue is that if I talk about things the team did they still have questions as to why the team also didn't do much. I've gotten questions as to after doing that what were we working on. Would it be ok to say we were an inexperienced team with that language and it took us quite some time to ramp up so output was much lower than if we were more knowledgeable about the language. Also it was a big company so things proceed at a slower pace than small companies. But if I say that then I look like not a good fit because used to a slower worker pace than a small company can accommodate.

Any suggestions?
