Was ''decades'' ahead of the curve regarding race relations. In one case, he forced a hotel to desegregate by announcing that either they would allow Sammy Davis Jr. (and other black people) to stay there, or he and a number of other members of the RatPack would not only ''not'' stay there, they wouldn't perform there, either. The pressure applied by him and his fellow Rat Packers was instrumental in causing UsefulNotes/LasVegas to become one of the first cities to fully desegregate.

** [[JustifiedTrope Fairly justified]] in that Sinatra [[HeroicBSOD fell into a terrible depression]], and was [[WhiteDwarfStarlet largely abandoned by the entertainment business]] [[ContractualPurity and by many fans]] [[YourCheatingHeart as a homewrecker]] and a [[PopularityPolynomial has-been]] following his fling with Creator/AvaGardner. Much of the RatPack were down-and-out entertainers and friends who took a supportive TrueCompanions-like stance with each other to help each other bounce back from their situations and ensure they would not be messed with.
