You also get "annoyed" by how black people talk, yeah, real mature there buddy. 
 

 
But why exactly do black people have to talk like that? Why not use proper english like normal people?
 
Why not call a gun a gun, a car a car, and a friend a friend instead of whip, pop, piece, nigga etc?
It's not just "black" people that talk like that (though in the game it is). It depends on where you grew up, I'm sure you don't talk all boring all the time. It's like people who are in England call a trunk (of a car) a boot, it's just what they call it, big deal. It can't be that hard to understand what they're saying, as I said before they're still speaking plain English.
 
 
I'd wish they WOULD speak plain English.
 
I for one couldn't understand what Franklin and his friends were talking about the majority of the time.
 
He was a tad more understandable when he was talking with Michael though, thank god.

Again, they are speaking plain English, just with a different (and more fun might I add) slang to it. You don't walk up to your friends and say "Hello friend, how are you today?" You say "Hey man what's up? How you been? At least that's how it is where I live and I live in Texas which is far from being known for it's "black slang".

 

 

They sure didn't in my game.

 

Very incomprehensible discussions, but it changed for the better when Franklin was talking with Michael when he used less slang.

Franklin is the sh*t, I like him even more now that he's made his way to the top, he's less average "street gangsta" more organized which makes him smarter now, I love the father-son relationship he has with Michael. Honestly all 3 characters are likeable to me, IMO Trevor is way too over the top, I have a love/hate relationship with his personality.

And how can anyone not understand Franklin?, for someone that's suppose to have a low-education, his English is very good and articulate.

Frank is definitely a weak character. Michael is ok for a yuppie. Trevor is Canadian who hates "hillbillies, rednecks, blah blah blah. R* had the opportunity to make something cool here for everyone, instead they take the same, predicted route. My rating score for GTA V has dropped considerably. I don't like how rednecks are always the butt joke in R*'s games and movies. that sh*t couldn't be further from the truth and they know it, but obviously R* knows who their master is. It's just typical, but whatever. Dan Houser and friends are obviously morons who know nothing about real-world Amerika, particularly the country folk. But they're british foreigners so why would I expect anything more??

Cant take you serious, because you have no grip on reality. I live in Alabama, the redneck stereotypes in this game and in movies are mostly spot on!

All we needed was some more Franklin and Lamar missions...the chemistry between the two was brilliant. I hope for some "Back in the day" DLC from when they were really young adults and in there gangbanging age and stuff


That would be pretty sweet, I also feel there weren't enough missions involving the two which is a bit of a bummer.

I think you might be the only one that understands no one really speaks PLAIN ENGLISH. I'm from Chicago and got made fun of for speaking English with an American accent. Because of my Ignorance as a child I believed American English was the correct English. Also  I don't think most of the people who don't like Franklin are racist therefore don't feel it's necessary to get mad. Can't wait for GTA:O

Well I don't know what to tell you other than to hang out with people from different cultures and backgrounds in real life. I know some people who use 10x more black slang than Franklin and I still understand 99% of what they're saying.

I guess, I just don't understand how people can "not" like Franklin, he's the guy who held the crew together, and arguably the most mature out of the 3. He's also got his head screwed on straight and for the most part, doesn't come anywhere near being as much of a dick as Mike and Trevor do at times. Sure he's a little bland and not as fleshed out of a character but I really don't understand how people can not like him.

I prefer Trevor out of all three, but Franklin would be my favorite if it weren't for Trevor. And I just like Trevor because he's hilarious - everyone's afraid of him, he's psychotic, and the first time you meet him (other than the intro) he's having sex with a crackwhore! (Is it bad to say he's my idol?)

 

I like Franklin because he's fit for the Los Santos area, Michael would be my preferable to Franklin if the setting was in Vice City, because IMO Michael seems like more of a Vice City character than a Los Santos character.

 

Los Santos is loosely based around Los Angeles, which is full of unorganized street-gangsters. Franklin fits that. My second reason is because he relates a lot to another (more famous) character we met from Los Santos - CJ. He is so much like CJ, and CJ is from this area, so being in this area makes me feel fit with a character that reminds me of him.

 

Make sense? But, each to their own.

F*cking perfect you sound like all the guys who complain about racism on this forum. Get over yourself every class of people was stereotyped it's like you haven't played a GTA game before. Oh and I loved the fact Trev Canadian f*ck ah was thinking who more badass him or Wolverine. I say Wolverine. 

 

edit sorry about double post forgot to edit.

 

Nope.

 

It's the same as in movies and TV.

 

Black people: Smart, witty, cool, but they are stereo-typed, but nothing as bad as it could be. When around white people, they always have to explain everything to dumb white person.

 

Yuppies: Always smart. Never wrong. Always the "hero". Always putting everyone down while making themselves look like the greatest. Hardly ever shown in a negative light.

 

Rednecks: Always portrayed as stupid. Inbred. Lazy. Stinky. Dumb. Always negative. Always. Every time. Just change it around; Change the word 'redneck' with 'jew' and see how it all sounds.

 

Mexicans: Hardly shown, but when they are, they're shown as illegals. But if they are standing in the same room with a white person, they have to tell the dumb white person how to do everything.

 

Jews: Always the greatest. You will never hear any negative, EVER. Never ever never.
