The comments were posted to a politician's Facebook page and could be seen by anyone.

The man that he addressed the comments to is also associated with UNLV. In fact, he attended school there.

That man wrote a letter to the university, explaining why he was upset.

The professor told 13 Action News via telephone that he regrets his poor word choice.

Green teaches history at UNLV and several of his student have voiced appreciation for his ideas and opinions in the classroom.
