While it’s important to avoid generalizing in discussions of race, the political climate surrounding the two minority groups Kihuen and Horsford represent seem at odds.Las Vegas’ Latino population is quite large. In the 2010 census, people of Hispanic origin accounted for more than 26 percent of Clark County’s population, which grew more than 80 percent in the last decade. The county’s African American population grew almost as fast but is significantly smaller, at about 8 percent.“The African-American community (of Las Vegas) is unified and vibrant,” said Michael Green, a professor of history at the College of Southern Nevada. “But it never reached the percentile the Hispanic community has.”The African American community is also more established than the Latino community, a fact that actually functions as a negative for drumming up political enthusiasm and attention for black candidates."In some respects, African Americans are taken for granted more, because they’re the most loyal,” said David Damore
