Chivas USA have been in the news quite a bit this year over the changes throughout the organization, leading to claims of racial discrimination, and in the case of former Chivas USA Academy coaches Teddy Chronopoulos and Dan Calichman, a lawsuit filed claiming wrongful termination on the basis of racial discrimination.

HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" investigated the allegations, and will air a segment on Chivas USA on the latest episode, which will first air Tuesday at 10 pm ET/PT. Soledad O'Brien talks to Chronopoulos and Calichman, former Chivas USA defender James Riley, and former Chivas USA player and current Director of Soccer Paco Palencia, among others, in the segment.

Here's a sneak peek of O'Brien's report, where she speaks with Riley and Palencia:

The Goat Parade reached out to Chivas USA for comment on the segment, as well as the allegations in the segment, and as of 4 pm PT Monday, had received no response. If we hear from the club, we will update the post accordingly.
