My last paid position was in Over The Road trucking with serious pressure to run outlaw, tired, and for not much money. Finding the Old - Black - Obese disease an impediment to returning to a paid IT developer/support occupation.

Old = ~50 years old
Black = Race, can be any ethnic minority
Obese= Body Mass Index well over 30
Free your mind and the rest will follow,
Don't be colorblind, don't be so shallow!
