Cops are racist towards the black character, Franklin.

Recommended Posts

So, I was strolling down a boulevard, innocuous as any upstanding citizen, and suddenly, a white man begins assaulting me, making me flee as he pursued me with his frantic violence. Abruptly, I have 1 star - absolutely no reason besides the fact a citizen reported the situation and I was presumed the culprit... and the cops arrive. As I'm innocent, I raise my hands, knowing they'll understand, but they abruptly say 'HE HAS A WEAPON' whilst I'm unarmed, opening fire.....

 

2 minutes later, I'm running down an alley as eight LAPD cops are behind me, GUNS DRAWN, and I still have absolutely no clue as to why. "Is it because I am black? Is this what happens? They think I am immediately guilty? I am armed? I am a huge threat? I've done something?" I see an escape, a rooftop with a ladder up it, and I begin climbing, but the police murder me - shooting me in the back multiple times as an 'armed suspect'..... execution-style as I have my back to them.

The cops in this game are just flawed simple. There will likely be a patch.

I now feel empathy for minorities at least. :lol: Rockstar knows how to address social issues and enlighten an audience.

Can someone explain to me what the term "racist" means? As far as I'm aware there's one race, the human race, inside the human race are breeds and stock. If someone was "racist" wouldn't it be towards another species? Since white and black are not separate species.

It's people thinking they're innately different.

It's funny, when playing as Franklin, I walked up to two LSPD officers having coffee next the impound lot and stood next to them. I literally did nothing, just stood there and the next thing I know, their guns were drawn I was being arrested.

LAPD living up to their reputation as racist assholes who beat defenseless black males without reasonable cause, such as Rodney King. :panic:

Does this also explain the posh white girls running from me when I stand near them? :cry:

To be fair though, they must have to deal with a lot of sh*t from gangbangers and such. I reckon if one were regularly getting shot at - say predominately by young black guys, I don't think it would take too long to skew that persons perception on reality. It's not right but they're only human.

Yeah if someone stood close to me (as a cop) I would tell them to step away. If they didn't well......

This is just an ingenious feature and I think it's educational, not 'wrong'.

Hmmm. To figure out if the police were racist against Franklin, you would have to see the exact same situation with Trevor or Michael.

The samething happens with Michael. At the airport I just stand in front of 2 cops. Did nothing. Then out of nowhere they started screaming at Michael and to make a long story short I ended up wasted lol.

I don't even play as Franklin because it takes too long trying to get everywhere on the back of the bus.

LOL not only that but when I go to play like Golf or Tennis as Franklin, I always seem to lose unlike the whites (Michael and Trevor) where I almost always win.

Maybe u pressed the d-pad to the right(or not), and Franklin insulted the cop.
