: I am ready to replace my old porch lights with these nice onion lights my wife brought home, but I noticed that there is no ground wire coming from the new lamps. Just a single black and a single white wire. Am i ok to just connect white to white and black to black, as long as the ground wire fom the house is connected to the metal bar that the lamp witll be mounted to?

If the printed instructions say so, then do it.

The new fixtures must be non-metalic and therefore are not a shock hazzard if there is not a ground (bare) wire, or a ground screw on the bar. It should be fine to install it the way you stated. Mr. Electric
