Please educate me please.

I am confused if Nabi Isa is brown or a reddy white.

Nabi Isa as will have a reddish whitish complexion - insha Allâh

Urwah ibn masood ra... He will resemble this Sahabi

Some ahadith say brown, others say reddish white, depending on the narrator who tried to recall what was saved in their memory during speeches.
No point wondering if it's a mistake on the part of the Prophet pbuh because it's obvious that the difference appears in the narrations of the same hadith and it's various interpretations, namely that of the incident near Al Ka'bah.

Is there a description of Urwah ibn Masood?

He was the leader of at-taif which is in the arabian peninsula, you can get a general idea of common arab complexion of the time, most likely light brown or what would be described as olive, leaders of the time in the region were less likely to be very dark skinned ("black") since it is alluded to as uncommon in the hadith regarding "....even if an abissynian slave..." and the comment of the Quraishi when bilal (ra) climbed the Ka'bah at Makkah. It is unlikely to be the Roman "reddish white" due to the fact that he wasn't reported to have been of Roman origin like suhaib is sometimes described as being.
Another method of gaining a very general idea would be to use genealogy software but that wouldn't give you any detailed information about a specific individual.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urwah_ibn_Mas%27ud

Google the term "arab" and hit images, you'll find a range of tones to hypothesize from.
aisha the daughter of Abu Bakr assiddeeq is sometimes referred to as being of "pink" complexion so again, you'd have to wonder at how pale her parents would have been while taking into account regional medians in contrast to roman and abbisynian tones.
better still, find the dude and look at him, then you'll probably know for sure, unless he gets pale in cold countries and dark tanned in sunny countries.

And what did Urwah bin Masood look like?

:D

I find it odd that people would expect us to know what a man looked like 2000 years ago by comparing him to a man who lived 1400 years ago :D

Sorry but that was kinda funny

It doesn't appear that he was referring to 2000 years ago, but just a precautionary piece of advice to avoid the "black or white" debates that have taken place for centuries....

Enjoy :)
