I am a black girl , and this is my second interracial relationship, and I notice that both men always have their hands on my leg, be it driving, sitting, in the movies.
I don't want to bring it up, because I don't want my relationship feel like I am comparing him to another lover, or a black man. Can someone please explain?
Also, I get really uncomfortable when people stare at us, I mean it is 2016, this isn't uncommon. However, because of the constant staring and looks we get, I do not show very much affection in public. Also, I grew up in the caribbean and we are not use to having PDA's. He is a really sweet guy, I don't want him to feel like I am rejecting him in public, because he likes showing affection in public.

It is a sign of love, or affection! Simple as that! I'm a white guy who doesn't see color either. He is also telling other guys "your his woman! Back off!" Have pride your man feels that way. If you are not comfortable with public shows of affection, tell him so. Some women, and men just are not into that. But give him something to keep him there or he might be gone. I didn't think "hand on leg" was a racial, or cultural thing. ?2
