Convoluted definition[edit]

Defining minority in terms of majority then majority in terms of majority is going round in circles. The article then makes a false academic/colloquial distinction. There are different meanings of the word but they are not peculiar to academic/colloquial uses.
"the social majority, that is, those who hold the majority of positions of social power in a society." Here numerical majority is used to define social majority. Also the number of positions is not so important as the total amount of power held by the majority. Simpler: "the social majority has the greater share of social power."

", despite its popular mis-association with a numerical, statistical minority." this part of the sentence should be removed. It is not "despite" anything when the term is being used with its social sciences' meaning. (talk) 13:38, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

The whole beginning of this article is plagarized. I started trying to work on it, then I found the original at — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:23, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
