I am replacing my old light fixture in the bathroom. The box has 3 wires: 1 black, 1 white and 1 green attached to the box.
My new fixture has a black wire that looks like an extension cord (minus the plug of course).

How do I go about wiring this fixture? The directions say to attach white to white, black to black and green to ground. The fixture has no white wires.

Please help!!!!!
