The brother of accused murderer George Zimmerman took to Twitter Sunday to compare his brother's alleged victim to a black teenager accused of shooting a baby in a stroller.

Robert Zimmerman Jr. tweeted side-by-side photos of Trayvon Martin, 17, and De'Marquise Elkins, 17, who is accused of killing a one-year-old boy in his stroller in Brunswick, Ga., last week, calling the resemblance "uncanny."

He tweeted the photo to leftist filmmaker Michael Moore, the National Rife Association and the editor of right-wing news site Breitbart.com.

"Lib media shld ask if what these2 black teens did 2 a woman&baby is the reason ppl think blacks mightB risky (sic)," he wrote.

George Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in Trayvon's death. He admits shooting the unarmed teen, but claims it was in self-defence.

The case has brought racial tensions to the surface south of the border.

The trial begins June 10.
