I've always washed blacks and colors together and have never had this problem.

Unless it was cashmere or some other sweater type material.

I wash everything together and never have a problem. I only separate towels and sheets.

Same.

I even wash whites with jeans. LOL I've never had this problem. Sometimes I separate a new shirt or something that might bleed for the first wash, though.

  Try running the colors without the blacks back through with a 1/2 cup of white veinegar. If they have been dried already you are pretty much screwed   sorry.
