I find that if you disconnect grey C02 quick disconnect first the black liquid disconnect comes off easier.

Black ball connector meaning the beer out connector? If so, a spray bottle with hot water and some oxyclean has worked for me in the past. Turn the keg upside down, and spray where the post and the ball connector meet. Let it soak and try to remove. If that doesn't work, unscrew the top of the ball connector and spray into the top of it. It may take a little while for the oxy to go to work, but it should come off.
