Black x Splash = 100% blue

Black x Blue = 50% blue 50% black

I was under the assumption that this applied to a black from a blue mating not to a bird that was "pure" black. Is this not the case? I freely admit there are many here more well versed in the mystery of genetics than I.

Black x White is what created blue long ago, making Jersey Giants one of the few to be originally blue (not introduced into the pool) however now, the blue color just simply works like any other BBS colored breeds.

I am not expert, but I asked this same question and was told:
black is black, it does not matter what mating it comes from.

Sorry, didn't fully understand the question earlier.

Yes, black is black, blue cannot "hide" however you can get a really dark blue.

There was a thread discussing this some pages back, but. . . . blacks from a blue x black breeding, same as blacks from a blue x blue breeding, are still plain 'ol black, nothing hidden. Same goes for traits like a smooth from a frizzled breeding, or a clean faced bird from a tufted breeding, etc.
