Black liquid in transmission

First post here. I have a 87 prostar with the power slot and water got in the tranny. I removed the fluid with a fluid extactor and when I pulled the hose out there was a black liquid on the last 3 inches of the hose. I dumped a couple quarts of new fluid in removed that and the same thing. wondering if anyone has seen or heard of this and what the next step is cause I can't imagine that's a good thing.

Not exactly sure but I didn't get the drain plug 100% tight once when I took it out and had water in the bilge so I assume through one of the vents
