series wiring - alternative

Hi guys
the Dimarzio pickup is:

North start - Red
north finish - black
south finish - white
south start - green

For a normal series wiring, it would be:
red is hot output
black and white connected together
green to ground

can I do that?
red connected to green
black to ground
white is hot output

is this is right, will I have sound problems if connected in parallel with a neck humbucker using the normal series wiring.
thank you
