It kinda is. Successful and black implies a significant baseline skill. Notice how no one's saying he sucks, just, that there are better, incidentally, that's true of everyone. In his case though, there *aren't* tons of other successful black actors, so him being overrated isnt' really much of a slight and certainly doesn't make him underqualified. Even if there were tons, it doesn't matter if there are TONS of better Oscar actors/successful black actors/astronauts/brain surgeons, even if you're the worst successful one (which Chestnut is most certainly not) you're still kind of awesome.
