That sucks, but take the class.
While the remedial reading class may not be worth any credits itself, it will improve your reading performance, and therefore improve your grades in the other classes you take. It will continue to serve you well in the workplace, and it will improve your ability to absorb new information and produce better quality work.
Even if you would weasel your way out of taking the class, your reading skills are going to pose problems for you all throughout college, possibly preventing you from graduating. Even if you manage to skate by, it will continue to cause you trouble in the workforce, and in your everyday life.
Reading is THE most important skill for schoolwork. More important than math, science, or any other subject--because reading is an important part of all of these. Don't be embarrassed to get the help that you need. If you're not at college to learn, then what are you doing there?
