Barack Obama?
Martin Luther King, Jr.?
Rosa Parks?
Maya Angelou?

I’m guessing Obama, since it’s in the tags.
@skibum Do you know who said it, or are you really asking?

Pretty sure that was Obama, but I don’t like the quote.. sounds wishy washy

Correctly punctuated, it reads better:

“We have overlooked appearances, ignored misconceptions, recognized color is blind, focused on views, and remembered The Dream.”

The “focused on views” reads awkwardly. Perhaps it’s “focused our views”?

It was on the back of a shirt i bought at the inauguration, i thought it was Obama but looked through his speechs and couldnt find it, i dont know who it is, and i also googled it and failed.

It sounds to me very much like it could be a quote from Jesse Jackson or another civil rights worker. Doesn’t sound like Obama to me.
