I've noticed some white people tend to make jokes and comments about redheaded people. They call them gingers. Is this an offensive term, is there a difference between gingers and redheads? Why are they singled out so much?

I love red hair... wish I had it but it wouldn't look good on me. I think calling people gingers are stupid, their is no point... don't see where it's funny. When I see red heads (men and women) I don't think anything negative.
When people say ginger they mean pale/very light skin, freckles and they usually tend to have orange/red hair.
