Why is that?
Because that word has historically and recently been used by white people to reinforce the longstanding tradition of anti-blackness in US history.
When black people use it, they are deliberately turning that meaning against itself and using it as a term of empowerment, which defies this long racist tradition.
History is a real thing.

To me it seems to indicate that 70% of black people deal with racism on a regular basis.
Just simply give me some empirical evidence as compared to what? (other countries) seems simple enough.
So, your evidence that racism is widespread in the USA is an international comparison?
That seems like evidence for another claim: that the USA is more (or less) racist than other countries.
Asking for that would also contradict your previous claim that “ researchers cannot accurately measure racism or racist acts”. Either scientists can count acts of racism and make an international comparison, or they cannot as you claim they cannot. Which is it?
do your own research ,,,,,, Ill give an example though, How about the Jussie Smollett case?
I always do my own research, and you should too.
Let me know when you have evidence for your claim.
What does the Smollett case have to do with limitations in science when it comes to quantifying racism?
