Why were blacks still victimized in the Northern states after slavery's abolition?

1. I can understand why the former Confederate states still discriminated against blacks starting from Reconstruction, but why did the North? 2. Isn't it inconsistent for Northern whites to have believed earnestly in, and championed, slavery's abolition, but remain racist against blacks?
