No statistics will ever persuade racists or Republicans this is true, but yes, poor white people receive more benefits from many safety net programs than non-white people, and food stamps are one of those programs.

Paul Krugman:

Data are scrappier on food stamps (pdf), with a lot of states failing to report the race of many recipients; but if we look at, for example, Pennsylvania, which does have almost complete reporting, we find that 59 percent of food stamp recipients are non-Hispanic whites.
