I can't wait to play as Franklin, he seems cool and you can't think of him as a pussy just cause he don't wanna sell dope on the corner. Same sh*t about Luis.

I'll admit; at first I wasn't really interested in Franklin at all because we don't know much about him. However, since this thead has been posted, I've come to appreciate the mystery and gotten hyped for the answers.

IQ-wise, they're basicly the same.

You don't know what you're talking about, do you?

Also, the correct spelling is "basically".

My bad, I'm not a native speaker.

And, well, how would I not know ? Luis had a Cole Phelps morality along with a smaller IQ. And from what I've seen so far, it seems that Franklin will be the same.

?? What was Luis then? Don't say Dominican because that is not a race. Clearly Luis has African in his blood just based on his features, like a ton of Afro-Latinos I know from the NY area. You can say the same thing about Obama then also, because his mother is white.

I guess I'm not black either I'm Brasilian..SMH

Oh the irony. Not only are you pre-judging, but doing so by placing your own IQ tags on video game characters.

Luis isn't black, he's hispanic. But why does that even matter in the first place?

It matters to them apparently, because they can't let it go and they keep replying and it will simply keep going on forever.

But I blame the ones who keep replying, looking stupid imo.

This will be my last reply on this topic, Luis isn't similar to Franky.

I'm not trying to be pessimist, I'm sure I'll be a huge Franklin fan, but from what I saw/read lately it's looking like we're going to have a Luis #2.

No, even Rockstar says Franklin is a mixture between CJ and Luis.

It doesn't matter, but as BigBoyTraks was trying to say is that in some latin american/caribbean countries and cities and states in the u.s. you might see some individuals that you may mistake for black until they open up their mouth and start speaking spanish on you. Now the question is, is it a coincidence that some of these people "look black"(have darker than brown skin and have "african features") or is there something else to this deep darrkk(pun intended) mystery? We may never know.

Where did I say Luis was black? I said it's clear Luis has African blood based on his features, like many people from the DR's or Pr's. Hispanic is not a race smart guy. Any race can be hispanic. Just like Latino. I'm of African descent but I'm latino because I was born in Brasil, which is in South America. Am I "African American black"? No but I am black or negro in Brasil. It doesn't matter I'm pointing out that Hispanic nor Latino is not a race. It's a common thing mistaken by Americans.

Ignorance is bliss, right.

CJ and Luis are the exact same character.

I don't really have a reason why Luis was a douche but he just is/was

That's call being a hater, straight up.

Luis was my fav character from IV, I don't really see anything wrong with him, was just always tough, physically and mentally.

OP, No, not even.

Sorry about that, lol. I just don't like him because he doesn't have a reason to do the things he is doing like Niko and Johnny do, he is also kind of a douche because he thinks he is such a big shot. confused.gif

I don't think he is like Franklin one bit.

That might be because he is a big shot.... sarcasm.gif

Luis is Afro-Dominican so yes he is black. But in response to OP, I don't really see how a non-Latino black from Southern California involved in a West Coast cultured street gang draws any similarities with an East Coast black Latino club bopper other than the fact that they both have really bad fades

So far the only clear similarities are as follows:

African ancestry

Ex-gang members

The differences are:

Luis is East Coast. Franklin is West Coast.

Luis is a bouncer. Franklin is a repo man.

Franklin has a dog. Luis, no pets

Luis is Latino. Franklin is not.

Luis's job is actually legit. Franklin is involved in a scamming business.

Luis wears fashionable jackets. Franklin is fond of button downs/polos.

You could apply that same description to CJ too. He was trying to make more of himself, but kept getting dragged back to the ghetto by his friends. Was also arguing with his sister and brother.

Only because you haven't heard him say more than one sentence... Which considering he used to do the same, could easily be construed as being an arrogant douchebag..

I am expecting Franklin to be exactly the same tbh
