I bought a new ceiling light, but the wires are complicated. It has 2 red wires and one green ground wire. There are 2 white wires too but they are connected by themselves. My ceiling has 1 black wire , 1 white wire , 1 ground wire. Do the wires work with only the matching color ports? Can I connect the 2 red wires from the ceiling light fixture to the black wire from the ceiling, but leave the white wire out?
