While many people appreciate cultural, social, political, and religious diversity, there are others who feel compelled to express their intolerance for others through cruel words and actions. Their behavior often stems from ignorance and insecurity, and they demonstrate their prejudices by belittling others who are different from them. These narrow-minded individuals attack others based on any number of reasons, including religious beliefs, sexual orientation, cultural background, social standing, or physical appearance.

How old r u?
There was rumors about my best friend raping girls. But i didnt believe it cuz my friend was way too nice to do that. Once both of us were absent so we owed assignments that the class already finished. So we went down to the computer lab by ourselves. My friend closed the door and locked it. He didnt turn on the lights."Turn on the lights."i told him. But he didnt. I let it go. I could work with the lights off. I heard the jingling of a belt. And some rustling sound. I started feeling for my friend and touched a long thing. "Hey!Hey!Thats my nuts you are touching!" He said not bothering to move my hand. Then i felt his hand reach out and pull off my clothes. He pushed me to the floor and followed me down. He got on top of me and started humping me. I liked so he started humping harder and faster. He then started licking,kissing,and biting my parts.I pinched his nipples. He started moaning and making sex noises so i made him suck my boobs. Then he turned me around and started humping my ass real hard and fast so he could make me moan and make me suck his dic. He made me moan 5 minutes later. I had to suck his dic. Then he started rubbing his HUGE balls on me. He rubbed and squeezed my ass. So i fingered the two balls behind his penis. Then i bit, squeezed, rubbed, licked, sucked, and kissed them. He started moaning again so i made him suck my ass while i fingered his penis. Then he made me rub my vagina on him. He liked it so i sat on his penis and started going up and down on it. Then he took me to a wall and started pushing his penis in and out of my ass. His red thing was came out of his penis so i started moaning and groaning. He made me suck his red thing and penis while he fingered my vagina. After i stopped moaning and groaning he stuck his fingers in my ass-hole. While doing that he made sex noises. "Shut up!" I hissed at him. Thank goodness he shut up. He started kissing me every where. Then i did the same. This happened for about three hours.
