Go to this link and read the two pages on "stoopid relays". Several members do a great job of explaining red vs. black stoopid relay question

And this pretty much sums it up:

You can use red relays for inductive loads like electric motors (fuel pump) and for resistive loads (lights).
But you cannot use black relays for inductive loads, you only use black relays for resistive loads.
