We may not understand galactic black holes nearly as well as we think we do. The link above indicates that a galactic black hole may reject up to 90% of the matter within its grasp and instead can reject and/or jettison it away from itself rather than pulling it in. This finding could better explain the reasons and behaviors of the huge sizes of galactic jets and large matter clouds moving away from the galctic center instead of towards it.
