Well ... as long as we are throwing around a bunch of nasty labels ...
I do think you hit upon the crux of the matter:

.... this covert racist managment, let me state that the company could have presented the prize to someone else to start with and bypass the whole unsavoury and unpleasant tos and fros.
ToysrUs could have done a thousand things instead of awarding the sweepstake money, invoked the law and order dimension, rescind and reward the prize money to Yuki in the end.
It is a dog's breakfast.
If the company wanted that sort of racist publicity, they have succeeded. If not, there was a muddled thinking at the gate-keeper's. The prize is for the BABY, not the mother. It is a fun thing, not a immigration exam.
A CLASH OF PERSPECTIVE???
The 'covert racist management' screwed up! No doubt!
Not only did they make an error in trying to do something fun and get some good publicity for themselves, thier dirt-cheap game backfired, as their poor thinking on the whole concept totally missed the scenario now being played out by the hungry media and their favorite newshounds, the wolves.
These actions demonstrate, very clearly (at least to some), that the 'covert racist management' of that company is not only stupid -- but really stupid!
And obviously white!
And clearly racist!
OK, do I have your side of the story straight?
Maybe I should add one more: anyone who tries to explain the corporate process in clear terms, maybe also labeled a defender of those clearly damnedably racists.
Let's roll out the 'ol guillotine, or what-have-you, and use it on all the lawyers and the judges, politicians, bankers, store-owners, corporate rich-cats and anyone else of whom the mob acquires an interest!
I am teasing you, of course ...
But I think you hit on the very problem in your thoughts!
Clearly the company screwed up!
And their solution didn't help the matter at all -- it was another screw-up!
What the 'covert racist management' ought to do, is declare an exception to their stupid rules (people don't care about their stinkin' rules!!!), in this case, for any given number of reasons -- one, the Dad is a citizen, two, the press is bad, three it is not fun, four, some see the stupid things the lawyers write into nearly each and every sweepstake contract throughout the whole racist white American world as clearly an attempt or an excuse to apply their racism!
Then they should hand the lady the $25G, throw a big party for the lawyer and thank him for his vigilance while rewarding him with a handsome $5G check for his great efforts and then make a public apology to the media, while taking-out big expensive ads in their service.
After all, everyone on the non-corporate end of the deal only sees the struggle of a small family that ought to be awarded each and every possible grace that comes along.
Corporate people just don't have a clue! And their attorneys are the coldest of them all -- the poorest choice in any kind of leadership, no doubt!
Normal everyday people don't care about no stinkin' lawyer's corporate rules!
