    Mitt Romney’s participation in a racial justice march Sunday brought the startling sight of Republicans’ 2012 presidential nominee avowing that “black lives matter” — a rare statement for a federal lawmaker in his party. But it also illustrated the key role faith groups are playing in propelling the nation toward action against police brutality. The march the Utah senator joined was organized by Christian churches in the Washington area and, according to attendees, drew more than 1,000 people behind a message that was consciously not aligned with either political party. Romney’s selfie posted from the crowd showed marchers carrying signs that rooted their call for racial equality in the Bible, rather than directing fury at President Donald Trump. The church-backed march, which began in southeast Washington and ended at the White House, was one of many religious demonstrations in favor of action against racism that have taken place since the...
    RENTON, Wash. (AP) — When he was an opponent playing in the same division, Carlos Hyde admired the way the Seattle Seahawks operated from afar. Of course he would. He’s a running back and very few teams, if any, run the ball as much as the Seahawks. “It’s been a place that I’ve always wanted to play ever since I left San Francisco,” Hyde said. “Going against those guys for four years during my time in San Fran, just seeing how they always ran a ball all the way back to when Marshawn (Lynch) was there.” Hyde got his wish when he recently signed a one-year deal with Seattle coming off the best season of his career. But even after rushing for more than 1,000 yards last year with Houston and playing through a shoulder injury that required offseason surgery, Hyde is fully aware he very likely won’t...

    The final installment in a series by Joel Sherman chronicles how the Yankees’ fiasco of 1990 laid the groundwork for a dynasty.  Deion Sanders wheeled into the parking lot at the Yankees’ minor league complex driving a $100,000-plus Mercedes. Across the street was Tampa Stadium, where the Buccaneers played. That felt right on March 14, 1990, since Sanders was between two worlds. The previous Sept. 6, Sanders had struck out in the sixth inning for the Yankees at the Kingdome, then began shaking hands in the dugout and left to join the Falcons, having agreed to a four-year, $4.5 million contract. That helped explain the car from which Sanders regaled reporters at both open windows while using a remote to change stations, though the radio was a foot from his hands. MLB was in the midst of its seventh work stoppage since 1982, a lockout that would last 32 days...

People are pointing out problems with some traditional journalistic attitudes and arguing for new approaches and new leaders. What should news outlets do differently when leaders spread "enemy of the people" lies? How should opinion sections adapt in the age of information wars? When are "both sides" equally valid and when are they...
    You ask, we answer. The Post is fielding questions from readers about New York’s biggest pro sports teams and getting our beat writers to answer them in a series of regularly published mailbags. In today’s installment: the Yankees. Now that CC Sabathia has retired, who are the leaders in the NYY clubhouse? — Steven Slootsky The most obvious answer is Brett Gardner, but the longest-tenured Yankee isn’t the only one with an impact in the clubhouse. He and Sabathia were effective leaders because they worked well together in a way that was constructive in baseball matters as well as off-the-field situations. It was a nice mix because pitchers tend to listen to pitchers, and the same goes for position players gravitating toward other position players. And their longevity and success also played an important part of the puzzle because talent plays a big part of being able to...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) - The outrage over George Floyd’s death arrived at Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s front door in the form of hundreds of shouting protesters gathered outside his home, loudly chanting to gut funding for the police department. There was anger about curfews, and the use of rubber bullets by police to disperse protesters. The mayor also heard calls for the resignation of police Chief Michel Moore. It was the kind of pained, indignant outcry the popular mayor who was born and raised in Los Angeles has rarely seen since taking office seven years ago, much less at the threshold of his home.

    Joe Flacco has hoisted the Lombardi Trophy and been the Super Bowl MVP. He has been the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL and one of the faces of a franchise. Now with the New York Jets, Flacco is merely a 35-year-old backup coming off an injury and tasked with helping Sam Darnold achieve the kind of success he has enjoyed in his pro career. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM “I’m fully embracing it,” Flacco said Thursday on a video call. “I mean, it’s where I am right now, and I’m glad to be on a team playing football in some capacity.” That's the reality right now for Flacco, who signed a one-year deal worth $1.5 million last week that includes $3 million more in possible incentives. It also comes with quite a bit of uncertainty for Flacco. He's on a new team in a new system, still recovering from...
    John David Washington has become a household name in Hollywood much like his father, the venerable Denzel Washington, but the “BlacKKKlansman” star said the elder Washington was surprised when he had landed his first breakout role. “There was disbelief,” John David told Esquire magazine of his dad’s initial reaction, noting that his mother and Washington’s wife, Pauletta, was the only family member aware of the big news. He “kept asking questions like, ‘For HBO? Like Home Box Office Entertainment? Who? Really? But what’s it called? ‘The Rock?’ He just kept asking questions like ‘Is this real?’" John David recalled. DENZEL WASHINGTON OPENS UP ABOUT THE GAME-CHANGING MOMENT IN HIS ACTING CAREER The actor continued: "I guess he had to check it with his agents to make sure it was real, and he was happy for me, and then he said exactly what I was going to do anyway, but ‘As soon as this is...

After starring as the core hero of the DC Comics universe for three movies, the 37-year-old actor is reportedly in talks to reprise his role for a yet-unknown project that will exist in the same canon as “Justice League,” “Wonder Woman,” “Suicide Squad" and more.
