your heavy duty supercut compound should be getting it out quickly. Maybe it sat for too long. I do not use a super aggressive compound on black. I first clean my wool pad completely with water, then run it on fast using a spur, then get it moist by rubbing in compound. Then I buff. It usually takes me 6-10 slow passes in one area before I go to the next area. I like to buff moving slowly. No need to be all over the place like a hack cause then you'll miss spots. I'm done when the surface looks like it has already been polished. You can also get to the point of polish and stop and do something else for a few weeks in case it wants to shrink up more on you. In any case, don't judge it til all the afro sheen is off the car and you have a true look on whether it's ready for polish. Then once I know it looks ready for polish I compound it again with a foam pad. Last I polish.
