University reviewing professor's responses to Muslim student

CINCINNATI (AP) - The University of Cincinnati is reviewing a music professor's sharp responses to a Middle Eastern Muslim student who wrote in a class assignment that Donald Trump's presidency negatively affected her family.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports assistant professor Clifford Adams' written replies on the assignment included: "Review this list of Islamic terrorist attacks and then tell me about your hurt feelings." Another note said: "Muslim females are safer in America than in any Middle Eastern country. How dare you complain while enjoying our protection!"

Adams told the newspaper he wasn't aware another student posted a photo of his remarks on Facebook. Adams said he couldn't comment because he hadn't seen that post.

A university spokesman says Adams' remarks are being reviewed and concerns about discriminatory or harassing conduct are taken seriously.
