an area in southern California; 100 miles east of Los Angeles (basically mexico).
most recognized by Palm Springs, a place that is pretty much a wanna be hollywood.
its dominated by rich old retired people, who drive expensive sports / exotic cars that usually go 10-15 miles below the speed limit.
it is a nice place to visit on the weekends (if you have money). living here is a different story. the youth who live here have absolutely nothing to do but drink, party, get high, have sex, or go to work/school and sleep. "if your born and raised here chances are you will either be a stoner, junky, slut, or a thug" is what many of the local youth say.
weather: summers get as hot as 125 degrees. winter as low as 40 degrees.
police: usually have too much time on their hands and usually harass the youth.

1.80% Black/African American,
