Race relations went backwards 30 years with Mr Hope and Change.  You maybe should have resisted that...

So for the benefit of those of us who require mental crutches to see forward, in what category does this song fall?  R&B?  Soul?   

 
Cooke is regarded as The Father Of Soul Music, for example his first hit "You Send Me" in 1957 you can hear how he sweetened up the R&B and Do-Wop of the '50's that started Soul Music, all the singers that followed Cooke in the 1960's credit him as inspiration and an idol.
To answer your question, if I had to hang a label on it I'd say Soul Music but that is what my ears hear.
This song "A Change Is Gonna Come" I get a little jazzy and Gospel feel to it but Cooke put his signature on it and made it soulful

you'd think with an 8.8 rating RP would be playing tons of Sam Cooke

Check out the his album Live at the Harlem Square Club, 1963. It is awesome and so different from his pop recordings. This guy could rock. King Curtis is unbelievable in the sax and if you haven't heard his music, you should. In fact Bill, I am surprised that he isn't played on RP.

Check out King Curtis -  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FI8d36w_ijw  

 A terrific version of Twisting the Night Away on that album

A firm 9. The only reason I can't give it a 10 is because I have to leave room for Aaron Neville's rendition, which is even better. Chilling.
