Default Aggresive to black dogs?

I have a dog reactive 15mth GSD, I've posted about her before. I live in a very rural location and I am getting help from a behaviourist/trainer to try and get her through this. Her reaction, although it looks very aggressive has always been centred around fear and after she has met a dog she reverts to typical playful young dog. Recently she became incredibly aggressive to a black lab and had to be lifted off him twice (she was muzzled so no physical damage was done). I've never seen her like this before but we have noticed in the past her initial reactions to black dogs is always worse. My husband and I wrote down a list if all her positive and negative interactions with other dogs, all the negative came from black dogs. Is this just a coincidence or is she worse with black dogs because of past experiences?
