I just kind of assumed every other non-race-baiting media outlet was, too, until I came across a Star story about a theft at 24th Street and Van Brunt Avenue on Friday afternoon.

In an extremely uncomfortable segment that will air on The Queen Latifah Show today, Shifrin says, of her video, "I think sometimes you need to forcefully close one door for the other one to open a little easier." (What?) And then Queen Latifah does the big reveal and offers Shifrin a job called "digital content producer." Whatever. Watch it below. In related news, Queen Latifah has her own TV show.
UMKC spokesman John Martellaro tells The Pitch that Kraske will begin teaching as an associate professor this semester, which began August 19. "Basically everything in the journalism department, he'll be teaching," Martellaro says.
