This is really happening. The experiment specifically targets white people ("Caucasian" - a term that has no scientific validity).
Oxytocin-enforced norm compliance reduces xenophobic outgroup rejection In the midst of rapid globalization, the peaceful coexistence of cultures requires a deeper understanding of the forces that compel prosocial behavior and thwart xenophobia. Yet, the conditions promoting such outgroup-directed altruism have not been determined. Here we report the results of a double-blind, placebo-controlled experiment showing that enhanced activity of the oxytocin system paired with charitable social cues can help counter the effects of xenophobia by fostering altruism toward refugees. These findings suggest that the combination of oxytocin and peer-derived altruistic norms reduces outgroup rejection even in the most selfish and xenophobic individuals, and thereby would be expected to increase the ease by which people adapt to rapidly changing social ecosystems.

Abstract 
Never before have individuals had to adapt to social environments defined by such magnitudes of ethnic diversity and cultural differentiation. However, neurobiological evidence informing about strategies to reduce xenophobic sentiment and foster altruistic cooperation with outsiders is scarce. In a series of experiments settled in the context of the current refugee crisis, we tested the propensity of 183 Caucasian participants to make donations to people in need, half of whom were refugees (outgroup) and half of whom were natives (ingroup). Participants scoring low on xenophobic attitudes exhibited an altruistic preference for the outgroup, which further increased after nasal delivery of the neuropeptide oxytocin. In contrast, participants with higher levels of xenophobia generally failed to exhibit enhanced altruism toward the outgroup. This tendency was only countered by pairing oxytocin with peer-derived altruistic norms, resulting in a 74% increase in refugee-directed donations. Collectively, these findings reveal the underlying sociobiological conditions associated with outgroup-directed altruism by showing that charitable social cues co-occurring with enhanced activity of the oxytocin system reduce the effects of xenophobia by facilitating prosocial behavior toward refugees.

It's noteworthy that some people ("low on xenophobic attitudes") actually preferred the out-group (brown people) to begin with.

The names of the researchers are listed below:

Marsh N, Scheele D, Feinstein JS, Gerhardt H, Strang S, Maier W, Hurlemann R.

As a commenter observed, a disproportionate number of these names would appear to be Jewish.

Feinstein and Maier are certainly well known Jewish names.

  1. CZ: Re your remark, that some people who, prior to taking the oxytocin, actually preferred the out-group (invaders and false 'refugees', simply illustrates the toxic power of academic brainwashing for decades. I would say the perversion of education is far more potent, in long term, than any administered dosages of chemicals designed to alter brain patterns (which is surely what this is about; it's been used to trick brains into refusing certain foods as a way of preventing or countering obesity in the past).

    1. The CIA believed that in every population there are a bunch of "mutants" who turn against the native society.

      "On the other hand- we must recognize that only a portion of international communism outside Russia is the result of environmental influence and subject to correction accordingly. Another portion represents something in the nature of a natural mutation of species. It derives from a congenital fifth-columnism with which a certain small percentage of people in every community appear to be affected, and which distinguishes itself by a negative attitude toward the native society and a readiness to follow any outside force which opposes it. This element will always be present in any society for unscrupulous outsiders to work on; and the only protection against its dangerous misuse will be the absence of the will on the part of great-power regimes to exploit this unhappy margin of human nature."

  2. Six years ago, a paper published by the same journal concluded that ‘Oxytocin promotes human ethnocentrism’!

    ‘Human ethnocentrism—the tendency to view one’s group as centrally important and superior to other groups—creates intergroup bias that fuels prejudice, xenophobia, and intergroup violence. Grounded in the idea that ethnocentrism also facilitates within-group trust, cooperation, and coordination, we conjecture that ethnocentrism may be modulated by brain oxytocin, a peptide shown to promote cooperation among in-group members…These findings call into question the view of oxytocin as an indiscriminate “love drug” or “cuddle chemical” and suggest that oxytocin has a role in the emergence of intergroup conflict and violence.’

  3. So oxytocin is now the compliance drug "soma" that author, Aldus Huxley, only dreamed of in Brave New World. This is terrifying, and a blunt reminder of just how cold-blooded and merciless our enemy is. We must remain forever vigilant. How long before this is slipped into our water system, packaged foods, prescription medication or health and beauty products? I'm convinced we're going to have to fight for our very lives in the near future.

  4. Not surprising that of the researchers on the PNAS study, three for sure, and almost certainly five of the seven researchers have jewish surnames.

  5. Seems legit. The scientism witch doctors and moon gawds highly approve. This study was done entirely by bored certifable idiots with autism and substance abuse careers.
