I guess you misunderstood the parent posting. The study says "the instinct tells 'whites' to help 'whites'", the parent says "the instinct helped people to stay with their tribe and do not help people of their enemies (which might have killed them afterwards)". This does not say, this is current behaviour, but it tries to explain the instincts observed by the study.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
