Which wire is hot black or black with white stripe?
The black wire is the “hot” wire, it carries the electricity from the breaker panel into the switch or light source. The white wire is the “neutral” wire, it takes any unused electricity and current and sends it back to the breaker panel.

Most wires have a white line on the positive side and some have gold and silver wires to designate positive and negative.
