No you shouldn't, you should instead just correctly configure it.

First let SELinux know you want to allow access to home directories:

setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on

If you want to share unrelated directories just make sure you have them
labeled correctly.

See this document to know how:

SELinux can really add a lot to your system security, and it doesn't
take much to configure it correctly.
