Major #mcm on Cole from Kong: Skull Island. Something about 'Nam boys in the shit, keeping their cool and dropping solid advice, that makes my heart skip a beat. Plus his story for why he carries a #AK47 instead of a #M16 is just 👌👌👌 #VietnamWar #film

There was a time when there could only be one (dope Asian) now we have two of em here contributing to creating spaces for there to be many.
