He is a great hard woking guy & I want my parents to see that too.
However, they find fault because he is white ( which is bullsh*t), he is 10 years my senior and the fact that we will be in a LDR until I am done with Med school. He will be by that time a doctor.
Neither my mother nor father are opened about the idea and don't seem interested she says she will curse him out and dad says he will ignore him.
I think it is disrespectful and rude and it will hurt me as much as him but I feel like they need to meet him what are your views? How can I prevent that from happening?

Since you're old enough to make your own decisions, you're happy and he's a great partner, your parents feelings towards this situation needs to come after yours. Of course you have to take notice why they don't like him if they seemed to have a good reason (disrespectful, badly mannered, smelly etc) but from what you've said, they don't.
The only thing I can say is to give it time since you seem to like him so much, and see where your relationship goes in the future and perhaps try here and there to bridge a relationship between your partner and your parents. From what I've gathered, they're not very accepting of your independence. Where he is in his career (as long as he has a stable income and works hard) shouldn't be such a concern since you are of course younger than him. That's not a situation that you can change - what I mean is, you can't change your age and you can neither change his.
Whatever you do, keep your wits about you. Don't take life too seriously and most of all enjoy the time you have with him and your parents both. Good luck.2
