Blacklisting an IP means that an IP address is added to a list or database. If a machine tries to access a system where it is blacklisted, it's IP is used to check the database before it is allowed access. If it's on the blacklist, permission is denied.
I was not sure how to explain MAC address filtering exactly, but this page does a great job:
