Hey guys, Im a sociology student and Im doing a research "To what extent do ethnic minorities (groups) have different conceptions of beauty?" I have to conduct a questionnaire. Do you have any ideas about useful, proper, specific questions I would include in this questionnaire? And questions that you would be going to answer? Im gonna look more deeply at PHYSICAL beauty

Assuming you're talking about human 'beauty'.

Aside from a reasonable argument that conventional perception of beauty is likely to be strongly informed by visual indicators of health and youthfulness, i.e. biological 'fitness' most of it is going to be culturally informed. It's worth noting that pretty much as soon as European explorers made it to West Africa they were taking West African brides and having children by them, there's no automatic reason to assume resistance to cross-ethnic attraction.
