Franklin Family Upset By Eulogy

The family of Aretha Franklin says the eulogy delivered at her funeral Friday was offensive and distasteful.  Vaughn Franklin, Aretha's nephew said the Reverend Jasper Williams Junior talked for nearly an hour and didn't properly eulogize the Queen of Soul.  Instead, Williams talked about the problems of black children growing up without fathers and that black lives don't matter until black people stop killing each other.  He suggested a black woman can't raise a black child to be a man, although Franklin was a single mother to four boys.  Franklin said the family was caught off guard by the eulogy.
