No Pants Day

According to the prank cooperative “Improveverywhere,”:

The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual event staged by Improv Everywhere every January in New York City. The mission started as a small prank with seven guys and has grown into an international celebration of silliness, with dozens of cities around the world participating each year. The idea behind No Pants is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants. The participants do not behave as if they know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.

The article goes on to applaud the increase in diversity over the years:

We dropped the “pants seller” bit this year after too many people lost their pants in 2006. Instead, participants hid their pants in a backpack. This was the first year No Pants really started becoming diverse, with people of all colors, shapes, sizes, and ages participating.

You see, up until then this organized silliness was almost exclusively a white thing. I don’t think this has changed much. A look at international participation tends to confirm our already established notions about race, ethnicity and religion. No Pants participants were arrested in Istanbul. The stunt is quite popular in the Far East – but unknown in black Africa. Here’s a list of participating cities as of this year:

Adelaide
Amsterdam
Atlanta
Austin
Bangalore
Barcelona
Basel
Beijing
Berlin
Boston
Brisbane
Brussels
Budapest
Buenos Aires
Cairo
Calgary
Cape Town
Charlotte
Chicago
Cleveland
Copenhagen
Dallas
Delhi
Hamburg
Hong Kong
Jerusalem
Johannesburg
Kyiv
Lille
Lisbon
London
Los Angeles
Madrid
Melbourne
Mexico City
Miami
Milan
Minneapolis
Montreal
Munich
Nantucket
Naples (Italy)
New Orleans
New York
Paris
Philadephia
Phoenix
Portland
Prague
Salt Lake City
San Francisco
Seattle
Sofia
St. Louis
Stockholm
Stuttgart
Sydney
Toronto
Vancouver
Vienna
Warsaw
Washington DC

A glance at the photos from Cape Town reveals that almost all the participants were white. Johannesburg shows a handful of blacks.

The freedom to be silly in public is a hallmark of civilized society. If we were to rate societies by their participation in No Pants Day, whites definitely come out on top. Asian participation seems to be anemic, probably partly due to fear of police intervention and partly due to the intense cold of Northeast Asia this time of year (though this hasn’t stopped New York participants). While blacks will participate as individuals, not very many blacks (even in majority black cities such as Atlanta, Philadelphia or St. Louis) seem to have participated. It probably wouldn’t be very smart to perform a stunt like this in the ghetto, and we’re not likely to see significant participation in places like Monrovia, Liberia or Brazzaville, Congo – even though the climate in those places is perfect.

I was thinking about suggesting that the upcoming American Renaissance conference be a No Pants event (we could still wear our ties). That way, nobody could dispute our superiority.

    The reason why whites can go pantsless in public and everyone perceives it as a joke and not a threat is part of my theory about why certain groups succeed and others do not.

    It’s not that there are not smart blacks or Hispanics, because there are. It’s that there are just so many more low IQ violent animals that it doesn’t make a difference. If blacks see a fellow black without pants they are probably thinking “oh man, here comes another violent insane black”. But a white sees a fellow white and thinks “well, he is either mentally ill or this is a prank. Oh he is joking around with people, it’s a prank”.

    When you can’t trust your fellow humans, things can start to go bad really fast.

    You can’t miss this from the Daily Mail…

      Yeah, I saw that one on one of links provided at the original site. Hey, I’d be looking too!

      • Atavism says:

        I think regardless of race, any heterosexual man would find it difficult not to look.

        Anyway, I don’t think that this event is a good idea. In a traditional or conservative society it wouldn’t be tolerated.

    What are you talking about? A lot of blacks go on public transit with no pants.

    Except they’re doing it for real, not part of a meme.

    eerily reminiscent of an Aussie prank called the “Dak Drop”. You’re at a party, talking to an attractive woman…belt pre-loosened, and down slide your pants. See if she’ll notice, or pretend not to.
