George Zimmerman's brother made some crazy, racially charged comparisons on Twitter on Sunday night. In a series of tweets, Robert Zimmerman compared Trayvon Martin to alleged killer De'Marquis Elkins

Elkins is charged with killing a 1-year-old in Georgia. Zimmerman shared an image that shows Martin and Elkins side by side, holding up their middle fingers.

Zimmerman, of course, stirred up conversation. He questioned why "Blacks mightB risky" to society and said that the media casted Trayvon Martin in a "child-like light and my bro as a villain."

Zimmerman, most likely, is still going in on Twitter.
