comment Word for hope-instilling?
You have a few answers to get your started, but we're really trying to avoid using this site for "single word requests." If you have a particularly interesting problem to solve, all we ask is that you put a bit of effort and research into the question. See: meta.english.stackexchange.com/questions/1654/… or meta.english.stackexchange.com/questions/2160/…

comment What makes a word offensive?
This is more of a sociological issue than one of the English language. There are gestures and people and philosophies that people find just as offensive. Asking why certain "words" are also offensive doesn't change the scope and make it a question about English. The answers below would seem to bear that out (mostly historical/cultural references). You have a few answers I hope you find helpful, but I am going to close this as off topic.
