Red bandana

I really want to start wearing a bandana to keep my hair up, and red was the color I figured would go best with most of my outfits. But I live in a city, and all my friends tell me "You can't wear a red bandana! People will think you're in a gang!" I think it's stupid, but at the same time, just because I I think it's stupid doesn't mean I won't get shot walking out in public. I don't like altering myself just because of other people, but at the same time I don't want people making assumptions about me or putting my life at risk. Do you think it's really an issue or is it just people making up stories? Do any of you ever wear red bandanas in the city, and has it caused you problems? Should I just pick another color?
