In brief: No

There is nothing specifically about being white (or caucasian) that predisposes to addiction.
There are families with higher levels of addiction which may be related to genetic predisposition, as well as social and psychological predispositions. There are some cultures with high levels of addiction, while others have lower levels, but this is more likely due to social issues than genetics.
