True in Direct Current (DC) circuits, but not true in Alternating Current circuits (AC). With AC Black is Hot, and White is Common. I only mention this as both currents are found in many consumer electronics. But with that said your memonic works. I like your electronic tips & tricks. Thanks for sharing them.
