Major League Soccer releases statement concerning allegations of racism and discrimination at Chivas USA

MLS: Releases a statement on the hullabaloo at CUSA - Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

After many people wondered what the league thought about the allegations at Chivas USA, the league responds, in a manner of speaking.

Nearly a week after HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" brought the ongoing allegations of racism and discrimination at Chivas USA to the forefront once more, and to a wider audience, and five days after Chivas USA issued a statement of their own concerning the controversy, Major League Soccer has officially broken the silence and released a statement of its own. It is terse, but here is the release in its entirety:

We are well aware of the allegations made by ex-players and employees of Chivas USA. MLS has zero tolerance for discrimination or prejudice of any kind and have been deeply committed to diversity and fairness on our fields, in our stadiums and in our workplace. We are proud of our record in those areas and expect our owners and clubs to live up to the League's high standards. And although the allegations in this lawsuit raise serious issues, it would not be appropriate for us to say anything more while the litigation is ongoing.
