Those words were uttered by Reverend Al Sharpton in a first season episode of "Boston Legal". He was making that statement in relation to a case in which a young black girl was turned down for the role of "Annie".

What it is, is a Japanese Spiderman TV show that comes across as a mix of Spiderman, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Godzilla, and Transformers. Talk about originality (or lack thereof)!
At least the trailer is funny enough to watch for a couple of minutes. Take a look:
