i ENVY YOU, guys, to "know" so much about BHs to speak of a singularity.
I would not go further than "according to what is said about them, they may
wash off whatever got into and turn into - sort of - a singularity".
Galaxies, whatever, fall into those hypothetical BHs and who knows how much
Dark Matter (the assumed), we just "don't know" - it all may be neatly
in and escape from the habitual description of the 'singularity' as an
structural view, - or - as seemingly you assume: they homogenize (paste?)
it all into a - well - singularity-content.

Whoever KNOWS more about singularities, BHs, Dark Matter, should
speak up - please: NO assumptions ('it got to be's) or deductions of such!
