Is it racist to wear 5 braids?

I’m white. I don’t want to wear cornrows, just multiple braids, so I can sleep and wake up with my hair curly. Is it racist?

    First of all - it sounds like you are doing it in the privacy of your own home just to achieve a certain level of curl or body in your hair.  There is NOTHING wrong with that at all.

    Also - just wearing multiple braids shouldn't be considered "racist".  It isn't doing anything against any particular race - it is just imitating a hair style.  If that is "racist" - then many African Americans are very racist because many of them use hair treatments to calm down their naturally curly and stiff hair into something that is more manageable - and more like a white person's hair.
