Light Speed Is Not Real?

O.k...question.

Can light travel at the speed of light? According to Einsteins T.R. nothing except light can travel at the speed of light..sorta. So, if the photons of light have properties of light and matter..i.e. can be pulled into black holes, how can it travel at the speed of light? Wouldn't it, as it approached the speed of light, gain more and more mass slowing it down untill it took an infinite amount of mass to move it to that speed?

Let me know, please! Thanks.
