Either the red or the black is switched, try one and then the other. And cap the one you won't be using. If one of them does not have constant power you will have to change wiring at the switch.

Thanks. Just corrected the wire colors but I assume the answer is the same

When you say "try one then the other" do you mean test with a multimeter and see which is hot when it is switched?

Yes, usually the outlet is only have switched. The other is constant on.
