The funeral for Nancy Reagan, former first lady of the United States, has been set for Friday, March 11 at 2 p.m. Reagan, who died on Sunday of congestive heart failure at the age of 94, has been highly respected for her “Just Say No” campaign that she implemented during the height of the 1980’s drug epidemic. But due to her husband’s legacy and rumored involvement in the devastation, a petition is circulating requesting that Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” be performed at her funeral.

The Change.org petition calling to have Wap rap his hit song about his girlfriend that was by his side while he sold drugs already has over 5,000 signatures. While it’s unlikely that the hip hop artist will even be invited to Reagan’s funeral, the facetious petition points out the flaws of the War on Drugs that the first lady helped initiate:

While her husband, Ronald Reagan, was linking up with Papi to flood the streets with narcotics, Nancy was on TV telling kids to “Say No To Drugs.” Her infamous “anti-drug” phrase encouraged strict laws on drug possession that led to a school-to-prison pipeline we’re still dealing with now. Blacks and Latinos went to jail in droves for possessing drugs her husband gave them. It was an incredible sleight of hand that would make any wannabe Trap Queen hide in shame for her inability to be as diabolical as Nancy.

Allegations that the CIA placed drugs into Black communities under the Reagan administration surfaced when California-based journalist Gary Webb wrote an investigative article in the San Jose Mercury News in 1996. He claimed that in the mid-1980’s, Contra rebels in Nicaragua shipped cocaine to the U.S., and the drugs were poured into South Central L.A. and Compton after being turned into crack, The Telegraph reported. He also alleged that the money made from the deals helped to fund the Contras.

Webb died in 2004 under mysterious circumstances. His death was deemed a suicide, although he was found with two gunshot wounds to his head. Many believe he was murdered.

      Yes, it is kinda like her husband being responsible for drugs flooding the streets of the inner-city in the 80s while she promoted her “just say no” campaign.

        I was trying to lay off the darling of the Conservative movement in this country, but since you all kicked it off….

        The Reagans were responsible for everything you mentioned above +:

        1. Cops in schools – which led to:
        2. Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act in 1986 – which lead to the zero-tolerance rules which resulted in the arrest and detention of black kids for basically bs infractions they would normally be disciplined for – which led to:
        3. School to prison pipeline – kids suddenly flooded the “Justice System”

        She did do some goo, but I think we need to be fair and expose you nasty underwear along with her clean laundry.

          People always have a tendency to only say nice things when someone dies, no matter how awful they were in life. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with telling the truth. No one is a saint.

    Hilarious. Let them play it for the Irony. They’ve done shit to Blacks out of irony and no one bats an eye but once it’s the otherway around.. “Oh don’t do that! it’s not morally right” Lol
