Ronald Wilson Reagan was an American politician (previously an actor). He is best known for being the 40th President of the United States (1981-1989). Reagan has been mocked a few times by The Boondocks comic strip and TV series.
Some time after the 9/11/2001 attacks, Huey Freeman called a government terrorism hotline, accusing Ronald Reagan of helping to create Al-Qaeda by funding the Afghan mujahideen during the Cold War. The call ended abruptly.
Later after Reagan's death in 2004, Huey and Caesar criticized his legacy.
Reagan was also mentioned in a brief story arc (which re-imagined The Boondocks comics if they were written and set in the 1980s), in which Huey and Caesar discussed the Reagan administration's role in the Iran-Contra scandal.
Ronald Reagan is first mentioned in "The Garden Party", in which Huey Freeman tries to anger a crowd of wealthy white people by saying that "Ronald Reagan is the Devil". This incident is later mentioned again in "It's a Black President, Huey Freeman".
While Reagan doesn't actually appear canonically, he does show up in a dream sequence at the beginning of "The Passion of Reverend Ruckus". While Uncle Ruckus is having a dream in which he visits "White Heaven" (an afterlife paradise for racist white people), he gets to meet his hero Ronald Reagan, who apparently runs White Heaven. Reagan informs Ruckus that he too can earn his way to this paradise, if he spends the remainder of his life preaching to people to accept "White Jesus" as their savior.
In "Stinkmeaner: Begun the Clone War Has", while the Stinkmeaner clone is explaining Nigga Moments again, he remarks "don't forget to tie it back to crack" and shows a picture of Ronald Reagan. This probably refers to the 1980s crack epidemic that was allegedly connected to the Iran-Contra scandal.
