Who exactly is the "majority" as opposed to "Minority" in the "United States of America?"


I am considered a "minority" as a "black" person - but why? I though that America was a pluarlistic society where all people are "equal." Does not the term "majority" mean that there is a "greater" value placed on that designation as a social "category." And, if it does, what does that really mean specifically? I mean the mathematical statement that 2>1 does not seem to be equal; 2 is the majority - right?
