Most Northern slave states made slavery illegal and slaves were emancipated. The problem with your argument is that while the Northern states may have had economies less dependent on slavery slaveholders would have been the people with the political power and could pass laws. It wasn't just economics, they did not think that slaves were on the same social footing and weren't going to tolerate them being free. Read the secessionist statements. Even after the economic argument was settled(meaning emancipation) we still had segregation, Jim Crow and the Civil Rights movement(segregation forever). White people did not want to associate with black folks. That is why Jackie Robinson is a hero.

If you read the news you see that black folks can't live their normal lives without being vetted no matter where they are. From cooking in the park to entering their own homes.
