Question Replacing light fixture

I am attempting to replace the light fixture in my bathroom. The wires coming out of the wall are one black and one white. The new fixture has one black and one white and also a ground wire. I know I attach the black to black and white to white but what do I do with the ground wire?

If the box is metal, connect it to the box with a green grounding screw (you can buy these screws at your home center, and the box probably already has a hole for it). If the box is plastic, leave it unconnected.
