Now that I know though, it kinda changed the whole perception of Sharkas i had, I can relate to them in many aspects! these people fought the Russians for their lives and homeland for over a hundred years, and the result was thousands of casualties, a genocide really, and 90% of their people deported and scattered all over the world! that's the story in a nutshell.
The thing I always noticed about Sharkas ever since is their pride of being Sharkas; the flags, the bumper stickers and all that, now I don't only understand it, but I respect it tremendously actually.
I really don't know how come in my 26 years I never heard about this in school or elsewhere!! better late than never I guess.
read more about the Russian-Circassion war and genocide.
