In late November 2011, pop star Janet Jackson debuted a line of genuine mink fur coats, jackets, vests, scarves and gloves for clothing company Blackglama. In addition to helping design the collection, Jackson is modeling for Blackglama as part of their "What Becomes a Legend Most" campaign.

Many of the artist's fans are shocked by her decision to wear and promote fur, especially since she has spoken against fur in the past and appears on several celebrity vegetarian lists. In a press statement about the fur line, Jackson said, "The art of fashion is one of my great passions."

According to Blackglama's website, "... less than 2% of the world's black mink population [is] deemed worthy of the exclusive Blackglama name." Unfortunately, these minks will live their lives in cramped cages before being killed by poison, electrocution, suffocation or gas.

An average of 40 minks must be killed to make one fur coat. In spite of this, Jackson continues to promote her fur line, as evidenced by a recently tweeted pic showing off the collection.
Please sign the petition to convince Janet Jackson to end her fur line.

Joseph Kony deserves to be arrested tomorrow. He\\\'s spent two decades committing horrific crimes against humanity. However, if he were to be arrested, would the children be safe? Not in the least. So, what can you do? 1. Only buy fair trade ...
