Gingers have no soul

So the joke around our house with Bub is about gingers not having souls. He heard it somewhere else and thought it was hilarious, so now that's his catch phrase. For example, we play a video game together and he kills my character off on purpose. I will say "Hey! Why did you do that?" and he will answer "Because gingers have no soul...." and then start laughing.

My mom heard him say that one day and asked me if ginger was a derogatory term for red heads. I don't think it is? She didn't like him saying that or calling himself a ginger though. You'd think the focus would be on not having a soul being the issue... but whatever... lol.

So who is right here? Ginger is not a nice word or totally harmless when talking about red heads?
