I took out the reference to Yucca Mesa School being "wonderful" as this violated the NPOV policy. funkendub 15:14, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Nothing was mentioned on Yucca Valley experienced high levels of seismic activity. In 1992, three earthquakes shook the city (6.4 on April 22, 7.3 and 6.5 on June 28) and one earthquake (7.1) in Oct. 16, 1999 with an epicenter 30 miles north of there. Fault lines criss-cross the city and the Morongo basin, 15 miles (10 Km) north of the San Andreas fault, is posed to have a predicted tremor to register 7+ on the Richter scale. -- 04:10, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

I'd like to say that Yucca Valley is boring as hell. FACT. seriously. - signed by an anon IP

About the removed edit[edit]

<<Yucca Valley's large percentage of non-Hispanic whites is among the highest in Southern California, a very racially diverse metropolitian region. In addition to high rate of poverty and conservative Republican politics, the area has rural "Western" characteristics that attracted those fleeing from urban areas of Los Angeles who want a "traditionally American" small town, but the area in the 1990s and 2000s experienced militias and white supremacist gang activity. [citation needed] >>

I noticed a wikipedian removed my edit saying it's not properly sourced, but personally as a resident of the Palm Springs area whom visited Yucca Valley, I knew about the homogenity and conservative environment is a major draw to those who are far-rightists, white supremacists and fleeing racially mixed urban areas. Not everyone in Yucca Valley has racist attitudes, but a town where it's 80-90% white/Caucasian in Southern Cal. isn't common (I know a few other communities with the demographic statistic). I mean Coachella and Imperial County are majority or homogenously Hispanic/Latino and those statements can be backed by collected data from the US web site. + (talk) 22:39, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

All this may be true. However, Wikipedia cannot be used for proposing ideas that have not been published in a reputable place. Nobody's "observations" count. This prevents many arguments. Otherwise we would be arguing "observations" endlessly. Sourced material is the rule in Wikipedia. This is particulary true for controversial material. Race, for example, is a very sensitive issue. When comments are made of that nature they absolutely need to be true with no one being able to argue them. This can only happen with a scholarly source analyzing and making the analysis.

Fair use rationale for Image:Yuccavalley.gif[edit]

In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.
