Not given to Asian Americans or whites who don't make enough money to do anything but pay bills, or live in their vehicles and worry about when they are going to get their next meal. Also, not given to people that don't dress ghetto.
Most food stamps are used by rich/poor black people, mexicans, or white people who dress or are ghetto.
Asian #1: Hey man, I'm tired of stealing hot dogs from work, so I'm going to go apply for food stamps.
Asian #2: Alright man, you don't make more than $1100 a month, right?
Asian #1: I'm lucky if I make that.
1 month later...
Asian #1: WTF! They said I make too much money to get food stamps.
Mexican lady: What? I make more than you, and I have it. Honestly, you'd get them if you were black.
white girl: I've applied for food stamps 3 times, and I can never get them. I have 2 kids and work part time in a gas station. I've been on the section 8 list for a couple years.
Asian #1: Wow...I couldn't get food stamps either.
white girl: Every time I go there, I see black people with all kinds of gold chains and expensive looking jewelry.
Asian #1: Yeah, I've seen a few come in here who had food stamp balances of over $1200. Wtf?
Asian #2: Wow...the government is all fucked up...
It can also be used to degrade your friend after he's made a dumbass of himself, and it just sounds funny to call someone that, regardless of their money status.

Tom: That's cool dude, she's dead.
Jeeves: Shut up Tom, you are a foodstamp, foodstamps don't know anything.
