With the recent news that Hispanics will soon be the largest ethnic group in California, a professional soccer team in Los Angeles has allegedly hung a “non-Hispanics need not apply” sign.

A former employee of Chivas USA says the Major League Soccer team’s strategy to attract the local Mexican fan base has resulted in an “ethnic cleansing” of the team, Fox News reported.

Cynthia Craig, former director of human resources for the team, filed a lawsuit on Wednesday alleging a culture of harassment and discrimination that led to her leaving the team.

As reported on Fox News:

Craig, who is African-American, says she was forced out of her job in July after, what her complaint alleges, was a prolonged period of harassment against her by team owner Jorge Vergara and Jose David, team president, because she was not Mexican nor could she speak Spanish.

Craig is not the first non-Hispanic to make such an allegation, as two former youth academy coaches file a discrimination suit against Chivas USA in May based on national origin, ethnicity, and race.

The suit claims that at a November staff meeting Vergara identified employees who did not speak Spanish by asking, in Spanish, who spoke the language.

“If you don’t speak Spanish, you can go work for the Galaxy, unless you speak Chinese, which is not even a language,” Vergara allegedly said.

Vergara assumed majority ownership of Chivas USA last year and is looking to replicate the model of his Guadalajara, Mexico, team of the same name to attract the 4 million-plus Mexican population in Los Angeles County, according to Fox News.

Since Vergara took over ownership, the number of non-Mexican players and staff was cut by more than two-thirds.
