Subway discriminates against homeschoolers

Subway, the sandwich restaurant, wants to hear your child's story – unless he or she is home schooled. The national chain's "Every Sandwich Tells a Story Contest" offers prizes and a chance to be published on the Subway Web site and in Scholastic's "Parent & Child" magazine but specifically excludes home schoolers. Subway's website states:

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Contest is open only to legal residents of the Untied (sic) States who are currently over the age of 18 and have children who attend elementary, private or parochial schools that serve grades PreK-6. No home schools will be accepted.

Subway will probably say they excluded home schools because of the main prize ($5,000 worth of athletic equipment to the winning child's school). But Subway could have given it to a local park, church or school of the winning home schooler's choice.
Subway's Web site promotion not only misspells "Untied (sic) States," but offers the grand prize winner a "Scholastic Gift Bastket (sic) for your home."

It seems like that Subway needs to hire some homeschoolers to run their ads on the internet since they can't even spell the United States correctly. In speaking of homeschooling. Every white christian needs to go to to view the new home school website for white christian parents who are interested in homeschooling their children and at the same time teach them about their proud history and culture. Until then.
