If one were headed for a "black" hole, there may be no radiation pressure to prevent an acceleration. The region of space-time surrounding you would also be dragged along but would be warped by tidal distortions.

I'm not convinced that so called black holes are actually completely black. They would be completely dark of there was no way that light could escape from the event horizon once entering. If matter was crossing into the "black" hole, there might be a light source just inside the event horizon that could pass out again.
