Racist? Cher calls for boycott of Zillow over home sales to ‘FKNG’ China

Yeah, Cher. WTF! Or has she always harbored these potentially racist views on China?

There’s some anger at China on her feed:

@cher They already own us as is with our trade agreements and the money we still owe to their government! 😞

@cher it's happening here in Sydney too, locking out young home buyers

@cher the same is going on in Australia!

With some of her followers agree with her:

@cher Agree with you all the way Cher!

We should point out that there are opposing views among her readers:

@cher why is that a problem? Do you have problem with Chinese??

And this. Hypocrisy much Cher?

@cher Well they do produce a lot of the electronic consumables, we're all obsessing over.

— Mark Shuker (@Shukezz) October 15, 2014

Which Chinese-made electronic device does Cher use to tweet and search Zillow that we should boycott, too?


Cher: Romney is ‘spineless racist,’ ‘cretin’; Must fight ‘T-Baggies’ Bachmann and Palin; Update: Her unintelligible rant continues

Cher doesn’t want to breathe the same air as Romney and his ‘racist homophobic women hating tea bagger masters’

Cher isn’t racist; She hated Bush, and he’s ‘fish underbelly white’

No snow, no problem – China looks to take on a Winter Olympics

No snow, no worries? China gears up for its first serious Olympics

Yes, This Is A Boy Chained Up Like A Dog. And The Reason Why Is Even More Heartbreaking.

This is the heartbreaking, true story of a little boy in China named He Zili. He’s 11 years old, and he spends most of his days chained up like a dog in the province of Zhejiang. The reason why is tough to handle.

When Zili was only 1 year old, he suffered a head injury that sparked mental problems.

He is often shackled to his father – like a dog.

This story really highlights the problems with how mental disorders are handled in rural China.

Zili is currently being looked after by his physically disabled grandfather and his intellectually handicapped father after his mother died of cancer.

They stated that there was no choice but to chain Zili up because he was attacking people around him.

The horrifying photos are tough to look at it. He’s a small boy without a chance.

His partially paralyzed grandfather struggles every single day with Zili, unable to truly help him and resorting to this slave-like method of treatment.

A neighbor cautiously looks through her door as Zili runs by…still shackled.

He even sleeps with the chain around his leg. The conditions they live in are terrible enough, even without the chain.

His grandfather wipes away tears, thinking about Zili’s condition and their terrible struggles.


There’s only 1.5 psychiatrists per 100,000 people in China. In rural China, those with mental disorders don’t even stand a chance. People, even young boys like Zili, are forced to live lives worse than some dogs because of this ongoing problem.

It’s difficult to help children like Zili, but several organizations do exist to aid rural China. One is called Free The Children that you can check out if you’d like to help. If you know of any others, feel free to e-mail us the links.
Share this article if you’d like to raise awareness of Zili’s struggles. He, and others like him, need help.
