Black should never be * neutral * --- it will either be a constant feed or a switched feed.

What color wires are connected to the switch ? Is there another switch ( double gang ) or part of a 3 -way circuit?
Is that 120 volts between the red & white when the switch is *on* or is it constant ?
Something doesn't seem correct here --- unless the supply feed is at the switch box then there is a conductor missing.
