On September 11, three white youths allegedly outsiders sneaked into Rowan University in the wee hours and wrote racial slurs on the doors where a black freshman lived. The Rowan University racism incident has fumed the netizens on social media and therefore people are coming out to narrate their own ordeal they faced at the same university. In fact, Rowan University racism video is spreading like a wildfire on social media.

In the Rowan University racism viral video, three youths can be seen trying to pull out a misdeed irrespective of the fact that they are under CCTV surveillance.

Reportedly, Rowan Police Detective Sgt. Greg M. Farrar was quoted by US media saying that tensions are prevailing at the campus where Black students are 10% of the nearly 20,000 students. The Police said that was because the men said they did not know the race of the person living at that dorm room. Two of the suspects were given trespassing warnings from Rowan, and the man who wrote the slur, Alston Willis, was charged with harassment, a disorderly offense. In fact, Willis, 19, of Wenonah, said that he identified as African American.
