    As gun bustin drug dealin hoodlums.

    This games shows me how ignorant and how them muthafuckas think about our communities, are when they were making the game.

    The only time when blacks n latino get games made about is when its basket ball, foot ball, base ball or the GTA series.

    And i refuse to ever play this shit they call a game.

    well...its not like some of it isnt based on truth...there really is gang culture in black and latino communities.. especially in the time this is set in... im h;laf black and puerto rican... so im not bein racist... but to say that we dont have gang and drug culture in our community is outlandish... you havent heard of any gun violence? drug use? ok then... it is stereo typical shit...but until people stop living up to the stereotypes...OTHER races will keep that ideal of us...cuz alot of us keep those ideas of ourselves and refuse to change....

    how can you be mad at them making a game about gang culture? it is a FACT that it existed and still does... and it wasnt too far from what the game portrays...maybe indulged some forr entertainment purposes.... but i could see if it was all ~~~~~~ dorey in most black communities then this came out..thats different... but this just depicts an actual time period and the way things happen in a certain lifestyle... doesnt mean all blacks or latinos are that way

    nah...look at GTA three... mafia dudes... yakuza for the japenese... cartels for the SPanish... Yardies for the Jamaicans... and all of them are based on actual groups... we have to worry about teaching our own not to follow that path and make those same mistakes before we can worry bout what someone outside thinks of us... cuz if were making ourselves look bad...then what are others gonna do besides think bad about us

    I hate stupid comments like that...

    I'm black, I lived in the ghetto, came here as an immigrant....i picked my ass up and got myself into FSU...so I've been from the bottom to the top, and i'm a very educated black person, so i know the reality of the situation.

    Black people do act like that...and no im not speaking in general...we kill, we deal drugs, and gangstas do exist...so how the fuck is Rockstar shining a bad light on us blacks and latinos, when this happens in life. Stop crying, and beening blind to reality. Not all of us are stonecold killers, but shhhh this game has the few that are. How else would you have wanted them to portrey Carl Johnson in this game, someone who runs around and hugs all his enemies and smoothers them in kisses. He shoots the fuck out of them like an other anti-hero, white or black. Rockstar isn't attempting to downplay the black community, but people like you look too deep into situations. Grand theft Auto has been around for about 10 years....has there ever been a black character in the series...no. Has there always been killing, drugs, and violence....YES! There has always been white characters, and rarely any black people holding role positions in the game---except Vince from Vice City. It took till 2004 until they added lead characters with an ethnic backgrounds, they did not change the elements of the game, the kept the same formula, and gave Carl Johnson the spotlight, plus made the game as good as it could be...also bringing in popular black icons such as Samual L. Jackson and other black celebrities to voice for characters....

    You make it as if Rockstar is a group of white folk setting their goal to make black people look bad, when in fact this years staff had just as much black and latinos working on the staff as white.

    GTA is the videogame equivolent to any gangsta movie: Scarface or Godfather or City of God....which also shows just as much negative connotations, however nobody goes around saying it such a certain race as bad: cubans or italians...people saw the movies as what they were, not slander.

    What image GTA show that made black people look bad??:
    -Black people said "N-gga" to much? -----like we don't in real life
    -Black wanting smoking blunts?----o, i've never seen that...oh shit
    -Black people driving impalas and drinking 40s----hmmm...that can't be

    Plus, an underline message in the game was "don't do drugs"...and black people were delivering that message....

    the point is that they show the white people doing it in the previous versions of GTA...so when black person is put into the scenario for the first time...why should we have a problem with it...its as if we saying we're to sensitive and not smart enough to handle being in the position...

    i like it because black people have taken over sports, on the way to taking over television, we already got actors owning in the movies....now its video games....thats all. let it be.

    sometimes we ask for equality, and when we get it, we think we're being picked on...of course gta is a negative game, but shit...if you think about it...we got the same right to be in a game like that...why not. its a way of equality. get outta the racist mindset and stop thinking we're too weak to handle the roles we're given

    yeah...im black, jamaican to be exact

    although, american blacks sometimes have resentment towards people from the carribean. i don't know why...maybe cause we work harder.

    either way i came here when i was 6 and grew up just like an other poor black american...considering my father came here broke, looking for work...now we paid

    ^thats the only gripe you may have...and thats my history, so does that fullfill the requirement so i can post my argument.

    Oh shut, the fuck, up.

    Like dude said, when it was the previous versions of the game, when the character was white, you had no problem with it, but when it the character is black you want to raise all hell. Shit, don't try to act like this IS NOT how it went on during that time, - Although it's stereotypical in a fashion, at the same time, it's based on the reality of that period. Hell, Rap Music's been doing the same shit for the past 10 years...so why gripe now?


    So grow up....and guess what, I'm black.

    GTA is a game about killin people and jackin cars. That's the whole point of the game. You'd rather have GTA have a black person as the main character and then the game is about helping orphans read and him trying to work his way through the stock market? How boring would that be?

    Stereotypes have been in every single GTA. If anything, YOU'RE the one being racist because you feel it's okay to stereotype every other race except for latinos and blacks.

    I remember in the past, people were saying Rockstar was racist because the main character was always white. Now that he's black, they're still being racist.

    In all fairness, GTA has depicted white people, and all other races as criminals in their other games. That is true...

    But it does seem that now since its blacks folks, they went way over the top...


    I played it and it left a bad taste in my mouth...but it was fun...

    how true...lmao...

    im black, but im not ignorant...
    i realize that the unsuccesful black people are the ones that blame others...the successful ones are the ones tha make a difference and seperate from the pack. then blame later lol...nah, EVERYONE IS AN INDIVIDUAL...fuck if your black or white or latino... how the fuck does a computergenerated image of a black male in his early 20s have to do with you...the people want him to be a gang-banger...how the hell do you correlate that with it representing the entire black race and shit...lol.

    like i said before, i don't look at the shit as being racist and if it is(which is clearly isn't)..what the fuck it gotta do with me. If they wanna portray blacks as gang-bangin crack-whore killers....i know im not, im getting my degree and getting paid legally...its only a video game...

    save the griping for the real issues...

    lol, yeah i must admit...i believe the only complaint (which isn't even a strong complaint)...is that they went overboard with the profanity...they curse at akward moments, for no reason..lol...but not because they were black, brcause all the characters cursed at the same degree, overlooking the race...

    anyway, i was using this time to download more porn, and its done...so im out...1
