Wright's title is actually sarcastic, he is actually condemning the American society. "Native Son" is an apt title because Bogger is in fact an American citizen born and bred. He is also a product of the American culture and society on which he has been raised. In using this title, Wright is actually pointing fingers at the American society that he blames for creating the monstrous character of Bigger.
