Help with Citristrip and Sanding

I have recently tried to strip and sand an old cherry dresser. I applied Citristrip and let it sit for an hour or two. I saw the color changed to a darker color like the finish came off so I went to work scraping it off. After I got most of the goo off, I used Mineral Spirits to clean all the residue off. I then let it dry for a couple of hours before I started sanding with a orbit sander. There were dark black spots on the sandpaper after a little bit. Is that because the piece is not dry enough or that the finish is not all the way off? Any help is appreciated!! via /r/DIY
