Believe it or not, many of Sam’s most avid fans were white people, and Sam was afraid that if he wrote a protest song, he would lose those followers. In the end, Sam wanted to use his fame as a tool to change the world around him. One of his major influences while writing this song was Bob Dylan, another popular protest song writer during that time. Sam Cooke, when asked why Bob Dylan was such an inspiration, said “Why did a white man write a song like this before I did?” He said this because he realized that he should have written a song like this sooner, instead of worrying about his fame and reputation.
