My innovation examines a biblical framework as a license to interrogate the teaching methods of a white supremacist pedagogy to deconstruct white supremacist pedagogies. I demonstrate how Elliott Eisner’s formula for culture construction and Gordon Allport’s definition of prejudice diagnosed the environment for racist sustainability. My innovation educates learners to question normative racist narratives, examine white supremacy’s faulty premises, and identify cultural and individual contributions to racism and white supremacy’s evolution and sustainability. My innovation can imbue and empower learners to use their power to deconstruct white racist and supremacist thoughts and narratives.
