Abstract
The research on Richard Wright pays more attention to the political and social values in his works, while the ethical values are ignored. The family ethical relationship is an important part of African American experiences in Richard Wright’s works. And domestic violence has become an important aspect of ethical crisis in African American families. The frequent occurrence of African American domestic violence is due to the influence of the mainstream culture and the dual discrimination against black women. Wright’s examination of the interpersonal ethics and psychological issues within the African American groups shows that he doesn’t attribute the African American domestic violence all to white racism; within the black community, equality between men and women, the enhancement of black husband’s responsibility and the correct understanding of the mainstream cultural ethics of the whites are all ways to solve domestic violence.
