What's wrong with black and white? The white (neutral) wires will just go through the switch box (pigtailed together). The black (hot) wires will go through the switch.

Jay, you've asked a series of very basic wiring questions. Although we don't mind helping, I can't help thinking you would be much better off with a basic book on home wiring from your home center or library.
